miami beach moves ahead with redesigned convention center by fentress architects

the city of miami will move forward with the $500 million USD renovation of the region’s convention center, the building which annually hosts art basel miami beach. construction will commence following the completion of the 2015 edition of the fair, and will continue into 2017. despite the planned schedule, organizers have insisted that the 2016 event will remain unaffected by construction work.
