New Civic Centre competition, Miami

ARQUITECTUM invites the world’s architects to participate in an International architecture competition to design a new civic centre for Miami

The Project:
• The project is for the creation of an urban centre for the city at a strategic location, giving an open space where large groups of people may congregate.
• The development should achieve a language and organisation that relates to Miami’s identity and lifestyle, which will direct the citizens to a future developed downtown.
• The addition of housing, business and public buildings should improve the existing area’s use, so its touring will become an interesting target and necessary visit for Miami’s visitors and inhabitants.
• Shared use of activities during the day and night should ensure the constant occupation of the area, improving its security.
• The urban centre shall occupy no more than a 115,000 sqm area. The project will be located on a determined perimeter at Bayside Park (available in the attached site plan).

Accommodation Summary:
Plazas: 40,000sqm
City Hall: 15,000sqm
Miami Cathedral: 10,000sqm
Architecture Museum: 5,000sqm
Restaurants: 8,000sqm
Retail: 8,000sqm
Luxury housing: 24,000sqm

• Main concept of the project
• Plot plan
• Interior space perspective
• Elementary volumetric design
• 3D view, integrated with the context
