Soundscape Park & ExoStage
Miami Beach, FL
3-acre urban park adjacent to the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center (symphony hall). The park supports a multitude of day and night uses and includes a state-of-the-art sound and projection system, which projects live concerts and other artistic programming on to the 7,000 SF wall of the symphony hall. The sound system and lighting are housed in “Ballet Bars”, which also define the amphitheater space, in speaker “hydrants”, and in the stem of the projection tower. The park is complemented by a mosaic of white concrete sidewalks, undulating seating walls, and iconic aluminum pergolas (sculptural abstractions of cumulus clouds rising to a height of up to 22.5 feet) supporting flowering bougainvillea vines.
