Project Description

FROM THE ARCHITECTS:

Situated on the edge of Biscayne Bay, Knight Plaza connects the Pérez Art Museum Miami by Herzog & de Meuron and the Frost Museum of Science by Grimshaw Architects. The plaza provides a lush focal point between the two museums. Designed as a comfortable oasis from Miami’s hot climate, the plaza showcases a splendid display of sub-tropical plants in groups of custom-designed flowing planters which morph from wall to lounge to seat in one seamless form.
