dror has won dawntown‘s 2013 landmark miami ideas competition.


the theme this year looked at how cities have come to be identified by individual structures within them,
with a brief that invited creatives develop a new symbol for the coastal city–an architectural feature which stands out while also contributing
to the image the miami currently projects.


the new york-based studio’s winning proposal ‘miamilift’ draws on the popularity of the metropolis as a holiday getaway,
known for its abundant number of beaches, thriving mix of cultures, as well as its port location, making it a prime cruise docking point.
dror’s design has been conceived as triangular-shaped volume which appears as if it is being peeled away from the ground,
lifted above the water’s edge. his scheme includes a number of programs including retail, restaurant and café, theater, media library and exhibition space,
all of which will offer panoramic views of the city and atlantic ocean.
