on the occasion of miami’s annual art week, yves béhar has designed a temporary gallery that offers a glimpse of his life outside the studio. as its name suggests, ‘surf shack’ presents béhar’s range of wave-riding equipment alongside art work from his personal collection — including pieces by robert longo, llewellyn ludlow, barry mcgee, ken price, and john severson.

situated within miami design district, the handcrafted nature of the structure reflects béhar’s appreciation of bespoke surf gear, where individual boards are customized for specific wave conditions and personal riding style. the gallery also demonstrates how the culture of surfing has impacted béhar’s design principles and philosophies.

made from surf shack-like components — 2×12 beams, corrugated plastic, and standard plywood — the design embraces humble materials within a formal structural grid. external shelving allows occupants to collect and display various ephemera, such as rocks, beachwood, and shells. miami-based fabrication company deft union were responsible for constructing the shack.
