In collaboration with SB Architects
Two alley-interventions were commissioned in the burgeoning Miami Design District.
The first - a series of rough-cast, monolithic, parabolic concrete walls and facades create an inner block with dramatic changes in scale, shadow, and light integrating new and existing buildings together with a hidden court full of brightly colored trees at its center.
The second alley provides a secondary entry for parking and pedestrians with a strong visual identity through the folding of rusted steel plates. Both alleys seek to introduce a more tactile and human scaled atmosphere in an otherwise sleek, and glossy new commercial district.
