The new Pérez Art Museum Miami, designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects Herzog & de Meuron, offers 200,000 square feet of programmable space for the display of works of art, educational activities, relaxation and dining. The design is highly responsive to the city’s climate and the building environmental circumstances are central to its architectural concept. The three-story structure sits upon an elevated platform and below a canopy, both of which will extend far beyond the Museum’s walls, creating a shaded veranda and plazas. Working with local and international landscape designers and horticulturists, the architects will use this space to “bring the park into the museum” in new and innovative ways. The museum has been designed to achieve silver LEED [Leadership in Energy] certification.
Pérez Art Museum Miami is now under construction in downtown Miami’s Museum Park.
We hope you will join us for the opening celebration during Miami Art Week 2013.
