Project Landscape Architect:
Jamie Maslyn Larson

Project Category: Open Space
Project Description:
Miami Beach Soundscape transformed a parking lot into a three-acre urban park in the heart of downtown. With a design that captures the spirit and vitality of Miami Beach, its daily role as an urban oasis for passive recreation also serves as a gathering place for cultural and special events. Combined with audio and video programming on an expansive 7,000-square-foot projection wall, the Park is a world-class destination: marrying music, art, and the everyday landscape.
