Herzog and Meuron design the new Miami Art Museum

MAM; just revealed the plans for the new museum designed by award winning Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron.

Designed to achieve silver LEED certification for its environmental impact, the new 120,000-square-foot, three story building, is an imaginative structure that bridges urban spaces, climates and cultures.

Situated on the Biscayne Bay, the new MAM building, sensitive to the city’s need for public green space, is designed to extend the park into the museum site by means of a shaded outdoor terrace and verandas accessible to all visitors.

Tropical plants are integrated into the structural system of columns and platforms forming a dense, multi-dimensional sculpture garden and creating a natural extension of the transparent main structure.

The new museum will open to the public in 2013.
