Design for Miami Art Museum triples gallery space
Herzog & de Meuron has completed design development for the Miami Art Museum’s new complex, which will anchor the city’s 29-acre Museum Park, overlooking Biscayne Bay.
At 120,000 sf with 32,000 sf of gallery space, the three-story museum will be three times larger than the current facility. The museum will also have multiple 400-sf anchor galleries scattered throughout the building to house commissioned, site-specific installations. Galleries on the second floor will have windows allowing filtered daylight into the building. The $220 million museum is targeting LEED Silver and is expected to be completed in 2012.
