About the Project:

Miami Beach SoundScape transformed an existing parking lot into a 2.5 acre urban, green oasis adjacent to the Frank Gehry designed New World Symphony Campus in the heart of Downtown. Part of a broader effort to revitalize Miami Beach,  the Park functions seamlessly day and night as a green sanctuary for locals and visitors and as a special gathering place for major cultural events.  The Park design knits together core cultural institutions, brings new life to the center of the City and represents a breakthrough in making music accessible and democratic.
