Do you care about Miami’s built environment? If you are reading this, or any other of DawnTown’s posts, I imagine that you probably do. DawnTown came about because we seek change in the neglected areas of Miami, and wanted to showcase the exciting architecture in this city to the rest of the world. We care about the building environment in this city and have done, and continue, to do something about it. Now is your chance to become involved.
On April 26th, there will be a public meeting showcasing the designs of Skidmore Owings & Merrill, Gensler, and the team of Benoy Architects with ADD Inc, that hopefully solve the question of how to create a better space for the entrance of Miami Beach. The flyer above asks those interested in their community to attend the meeting (you must RSVP by April 23rd!) to help decide which entry will be selected as the winning design. The charrette was sponsored by two development companies, Crescent Heights and Paragon Outlets, who held the original meeting back in February. It will be interesting to see the designs from these firms, especially Gensler and ADD Inc as they are the only ones with offices in Miami.
