Latin American Art Museum Miami Project Terraces
A Museum for Latin American Art in Miami. Social meeting point through Architecture

In the Architectural Exhibition of Miami, characterized by the presence of a large Latin American community, the desire was expressed to create a museum dedicated to the art of this people, a project carried out by the Fr-ee Studio, which will be located in a new urban complex.

Today, Miami is a kind of laboratory where global trends converge with local characteristics. Miami's unique rise is reflected in a high quality of life. Public services are a great temptation for people who are thinking of moving or establishing a second residence, as well as a standard destination for international tourists. In this context the proposal for a new museum for Latin American art (LAAM) was born

LAAM will be located within a residential complex and will function as the main access to the people living in the 111 apartments, which will be built later. The idea is to offer an "aesthetic quality of life". Thus the museum will be a sort of meeting point for the residents

To interpret this concept, Fernando Romero, designer of Fr-ee, proposed a building composed of terraces and open spaces. The terraces on the different floors can be called "sculptural gardens", as they are used to display works of art outdoors, thus stimulating the interest of neighbors and pedestrians walking along Biscayne Boulevard

The different levels of the building define the functional areas of the LAAM. The second floor will be reserved for young emerging artists; the second floor will be dedicated to temporary exhibitions; the third floor will host a selection of 600 pieces belonging to the permanent collection; finally, a restaurant will be the crowning feature at the top of the building.
