Pérez Art Museum Miami is on the ballot for "People's Choice Award 2014" in the statewide online competition of favorite Florida buildings, sponsored by the Florida Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. There is no limit to the amount of times you can vote, so vote every day!
Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the new Pérez Art Museum Miami reflects the natural and urban landscape of Miami and responds to the city’s rapid growth as a cultural destination. The three-story facility includes 200,000 square feet of programmable space, comprised of 120,000 square feet of interior space―a three-fold increase from the Museum’s previous facility―and 80,000 square feet on the exterior. PAMM sits upon an elevated platform and below a canopy, both of which extend far beyond the Museum’s walls creating a shaded veranda. Open to light and fresh air, surface parking will be located beneath the platform and surrounded by landscaping and terraces. Stairs as wide as the plot connect the platform to the bay and a waterfront promenade, creating a continuous, open civic space that conjoins community, nature, architecture, and contemporary art.
A total of 58 buildings around the state have been nominated for the People’s Choice award. Votes must be cast by midnight Friday, July 18. The winners will be announced Saturday, July 19, at AIA Florida annual convention in Miami.
