frank gehry has officially been replaced by dutch firm west 8 for the miami lincoln park project. gehry and the city were at odds after he could not stick to budget. the project will still have to be approved by the city of miami before it’s finalized.

the firm specializes in contemporary landscape architecture and has designed projects including governor’s island new york, bridges parque lineal de manzanares, madrid and most recently the simcoe wavedeck in toronto.

the 2.5 acre park will serve as an entrance to the gehry designed new world symphony scheduled to open in january 2011. it will also provide an outdoor venue for concerts and expansive green space.

  • Not true that Gehry wouldn’t stick to budget. He removed himself from designing the park, and the city then sought a new designer for the park.
