Design Challenge:
The site selected for the new hotel is located at 6551 Colins Avenue in North Miami Beach, FL. Once the site of the Monte Carlo Hotel (built in 1948), the building was demolished in 2004 after standing vacant since the early 1990’s. Plans for a new 20 story building were approved in 2005 but construction has yet to begin. With nearly 200 feet of beach front property, the site is a perfect location of a modern luxury hotel.
The program challenges students to learn about modular building techniques and systems in the design of a modern and sustainable Miami Beach hotel.
