Design Challenge:

The competition is centered around the idea of how cities are recognized and perceived through architecture. Many cities worldwide are instantly identified by their exclusive architectural elements. This raises the question: What is Miami’s landmark? Although this city has impressive local architectural gems (The Freedom Tower, Miami Marine Stadium), these buildings reflect a different character and time period of Miami. In the last 10 years,
the city has radically changed and continues to do so. What this competition seeks, is not to replace the significant architecture, but to add a new landmark representing what Miami is about today and for the future.
