Get to Know the Fantastic Garage Museum in MiamiSunday 22 July 2018
Get to Know the Fantastic Garage Museum in Miami – In the busy heart of the famous Miami Design District, a neighborhood dedicated to innovative art, design, and architecture, we can now find a stunning and powerful building called the Garage Museum! Join CovetED and learn more about this peculiar architectural project!
You may think it’s a museum, but it isn’t! It’s a parking garage! That’s right, this stunning project is a parking garage for 800 vehicles that fully represents the style and the glamour of the Miami Design District
This peculiar project was born in 2015, when Miami Design District developer Craig Robins selected architect and curator Terence Riley to elaborate the idea for Museum Garage. WORKac, J. Mayer. H, Clavel Arquitectos, Nicolas Buffe were chosen to design the garage’s facades, along with Riley’s own architectural firm K/R (Keenen/Riley).
Bringing together these designers from around the world, Riley drew inspiration from the surrealist parlor game, Exquisite Corpse. This game included a compilation of pictures gathered by several artists with no regard or awareness of what the other artists have drawn, creating one image whose elements don’t necessarily harmonize but flow together as one playful piece.
Under Riley’s management, each participating architect has ultimately designated an area and depth to build out and given free reign to conceive completely different designs. The result is a uniquely contemporary, architectural version of the Exquisite Corpse.
The parking garage will house in the future ground-floor retail locations and is presumed to extend the architectural profile of the Miami Design District, which currently highlights numerous major art installations including Buckminster Fuller Fly’s Eye Dome and Zaha Hadid’s Elastika.
