‘miami beach soundscape’ by dutch urban design and landscape architecture firm west 8 is a new 2.5-acre urban space in the cultural and civic heart of miami beach. sitting adjacent to the new frank gehry-designed new world center, the multi-use space serves as both an oasis in the city and a gathering place for social events.

aiming to act as an open platform for the cross-pollination of art, technology and landscape, the new lincoln park is flexible in its conception, featuring interlacing pathways of changing widths that circulate in a mosaic-like network. the route encourages visitors and locals to experience the changing views of both the park and the new center. sculptural metal pergolas serve as gateways to the public space, the forms of which are influenced by fluffy cumulus clouds often found in miami beach. the lighting and audio equipment of the park are outfitted with a similar structure to blend in with the identity of the project. directly interacting with the new world center, a projection tower uses the building’s facade surface to feature video work by artists and to host outdoor movie nights.

  • Amazingly graceful! The structures would be great for areas with water shortages as well.

  • thanks for the posting – but just wanted to make a correction: downtown miami and miami beach are two separate areas. this park is in miami beach.
