the miami art museum has announced the completion of design development for its new 120,000-square-foot home in downtown miami, scheduled to open in 2013. designed by herzog & de meuron, MAM’s new home will work in concert with its natural surroundings to enhance the museum experience, and has been designed to achieve silver LEED (leadership in energy) certification. the new building will allow MAM to better serve its diverse, rapidly growing community, reinforcing the museum’s role as a bridge between continents and cultures.

the new MAM will be a cultural resource commensurate with miami’s position as a hemispheric hub and creative capital, with an impact extending internationally. miami-dade is the only major metropolitan area in the united states without an art museum serving the full spectrum of the community. MAM’s current building, originally designed to serve solely as an exhibition hall, lacks educational space and the facilities to maintain a collection. since the current building opened in 1984, miami-dade’s population has grown to 2.4 million and miami has been transformed from vacation destination to a world capital with a vibrant arts scene.
