IIDA South Florida Chapter advocates for advancements in education, design excellence, legislation, leadership, accreditation and community outreach to increase the value and understanding of Interior Design as a profession. Design Mix is the organization’s signature event which raises funds to award scholarships to exemplary interior design students, legislation advocacy efforts, and continuing educational support to their practicing professionals. The focus of the event is to pair industry members with design firms in a joint mission to fabricate wearable garments made entirely out of interior finish materials provided by event sponsors. This year’s runway show will begin at 7:30 p.m. and it will feature 25 models rocking the latest trends in textiles, wall coverings, flooring, tiles, etc. All garments will be reviewed and scored by non-industry guest judges who will present awards in various categories including: Best Use of Color, Best Design Detail, Best Use of Material, Best Performance, Most Creative, Most Nostalgic, Most Blingin’, Judge’s Choice and The Homie’s Choice.

The 90’s are often referred to the happiest decade of our lifetime. America was prospering, we had the internet and of course, Britney Spears was living her best life!

10 Days of Connection is a community-led initiative to promote kindness and inclusion in Miami-Dade and Broward counties. From May 1-10, participants are invited to attend connection experiences hosted by more than 100 local organizations, and are challenged to step outside of their comfort zone to forge new connections across lines of difference.

In recent years, people have become increasingly divided across lines of difference. Incidents of hate have increased, and tolerance for differing ideas has decreased. For ten days each year, we challenge the entire community to break down silos and engage in acts of connection, to build empathy, to increase understanding, and to refocus on our shared humanity.

Join in! Our community will be stronger when we all commit to focusing on what unites us instead of what divides us. A full calendar of events is available at http://bit.ly/ConnectionEvents2019.

Join the conversation by following @ConnectMiami on Facebook, @10dofc on Twitter and Instagram, and by using the hashtag #10DaysOfConnection to share your experience. Learn more at.

Self-described as an “interpreter”, LA Kennedy is best known for her high contrast, monochromatic images of American pop culture icons. The self-taught artist draws inspiration from music legends while merging pop art influences from Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol. Her ability to hear colors while seeing sounds, allow her to translate audio into the visual, creating awe-inspiring textured images on the canvas. The unique juxtaposition of crisp imagery and rough texture, pull you in and dare you to reach out and touch the canvas.

62nd Annual Vizcaya Ball “East Meets West” 11/17/18

This year, Vizcaya Ball organizers pave the “silk road” for philanthropists and attendees to explore the Eastern influences of the historic estate during the upcoming 62nd Annual Vizcaya Ball.
To the naked eye, the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens design was decidedly Italian but woven into its tapestry are influences and inspiration that came from well beyond Europe and reached further east.
Examples can be found in the water channels in the Fountain Garden, reminiscent of Moghul garden design in Rajasthan; life-size sculpted peacocks in the Marine Garden symbolizing India; the O-bridge in the same garden inspired by similar bridges in China and Japan; and the Casba, the tiled, domed folly making playful reference to the Middle East. The decor in the Breakfast room and the Cathay guest bedroom in the Main House most aptly illustrates Chinoiserie, the style based on European interpretation of Chinese and Asian art and décor.
These influences will be celebrated as funds are raised for the continued preservation of the National Historic Landmark on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. presented by Chopard and fashions by renowned designer Naeem Khan. Music is provided by the Danny Beck Band and fireworks display by Add Fire of Miami.

Sam Van Leer, the president and founder of the nonprofit Urban Paradise Guild (UPG), asks how can we fight the causes and effects of climate change while making Miami a better place to live today? Instead of solutions that exclude the public and allow big business to shape policy, Van Leer examines how everyone can get involved in projects such as restoring natural habitats, introducing urban agriculture for low-income families, and engaging the public and local leaders to find new ways to protect the environment. Van Leer has himself led efforts likes these at various parks and urban areas around the county, including ACE Preserve, Amelia Earhart Park, and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.

Cost:

Blackwell, working outside the architectural mainstream, will discuss his architecture and design process as being based in design strategies that draw upon vernaculars and building typologies and the contradictions of place; strategies that seek to transgress conventional boundaries for architecture. Blackwell will demonstrate how ideas and actions are generated from careful observations of intersections of nature-made and culture-made conditions particular to an architectural situation. Using examples of selected design works from his firm, Marlon Blackwell Architects, he will demonstrate that a resident architecture can be achieved as interplay between details, form, and place. In particular, he will illustrate the necessity of being responsive to environmental factors, the specificities of site, and sustainable design principles that ultimately provides an architecture that can be felt as much as it is understood, as immediate and tactical as it is legible, contributing to the fundamental civic dignity of communities.

Hidden secrets revealed by Barry Fellman’s Mangrove Coast photos will be on view in an invited installation at this year’s Art Miami Fair. Open free to the public during Miami Art Week, new photos from this multi-year project will be presented in a specially designed shipping container at the entrance of Art Miami. The installation, part of the Deep See project, will invite viewers into an immersive water focused experience. 
 
Felllman’s images seduce you, inviting you closer to understand them.  As you approach they clarify into familiar forms of sea grasses and shells, while basic notions of scale and distance remain a mystery until your nose is nearly pressed against the photograph. You then realize you are looking at a wondrous and fantastic view of the shoreline, full of secrets and mysteries.
 
The mangrove ecosystem provides shoreline protection and serves as the economic base for the recreational and commercial activities that have made South Florida prosper.  It recycles nutrients and is the breeding and feeding grounds for hundreds of species, nurturing a wide range of marine life, amphibians, birds, and mammals. 
 
Mangrove Coast at Art Miami is one of four invited components of the Deep See project highlighting awareness about climate change, sea level rise and marine conservation.

Brillhart Architecture is borne out of a love for and facility with “making” things. In the natural course of development, tectonics, materiality and the logic of construction have become a primary focus of interest. Relying on a back-to-basics approach, we often study old models for future buildings, marrying archetypes and prototypes with new materials, fabrication and construction assemblies – all the while placing heavy emphasis on process as a means of furthering creativity and invention. The goal is to create a contemporary and dynamic building vocabulary that resuscitates the Ancient, celebrates the Modern, and foresees an architecture without big style.

Though the firm works on a diverse range of projects – including commercial and residential architecture as well as exhibitions, interiors, furniture, and other speculative research projects – a pragmatic building vocabulary, emphasis on tectonic potential, and ideas of craftsmanship are the common threads that link each project together.

The office also embraces a very hands-on, “knowledge-how” ethos that extends beyond design. Engaged in low-budget competitions, installations, and personal endeavors (such as our house) early on, we grew our firm by conceiving, designing, fabricating, assembling and constructing many things ourselves. In simply having to figure things out, we have become highly resourceful: regularly collaborating with outside disciplines; learning to maximize structural and material efficiencies; and seeking creative solutions to details that may be outside the industry defaults.

As a result, the firm has won numerous awards for design innovation, including AIA awards in 2008 and 2010, and competition winnings. Work has been featured in the New York Times, Wallpaper, Metropolis, Design Bureau, and the Miami Herald. Custom furniture pieces have also been included in the annual design show, Inventory, held during Design Miami and Art Basel.

The firm was founded by Jacob Brillhart in 2005, after he completed his Masters in Architecture from Columbia University. Jacob complements his practice by teaching design, freehand drawing, and architectural theory as an Assistant Professor at the University of Miami School of Architecture. A Gabriel Prize finalist in 2006 and 2007 and a finalist for the 2010 Rome Prize in Architecture, Brillhart has also served as the Favrot Visiting Assistant Professor at Tulane University.

November 2016/ Design Miami/ returns to Miami Beach across from Art Basel for its twelfth edition as the meeting point of the design world’s elite with a distinctly new set of projects, partnerships and programming.

Thirty-one of the world’s leading design galleries will exhibit, with four first time exhibitors: Chamber of New York City, The Future Perfect of New York City and San Francisco, Mercado Moderno of Rio de Janeiro and Giovanni Beltran of Miami.

This edition reveals several pronounced highlights among the fair’s gallery program – Mexican emerging and established talent will appear, with new works by Abel Zavala at ammann//gallery, Tanya Aguiñiga at Volume Gallery, and Gloria Cortina at Cristina Grajales Gallery. Unexpected materials will also be found throughout the fair, signaling a distinct inclination to the found and to the salvaged this year; ranging from new work by Misha Kahn at Friedman Benda; Hugo França’s works in reclaimed indigenous woods at Mercado Moderno; and Niek Pulles at Chamber Gallery presents everything from classical door frames to objects and products all found on the streets of his native Amsterdam. Visitors can also expect to see monumental solo exhibitions ranging from seminal designer Maria Pergay at Jousse Entreprise to renowned artist Giorgio Vigna at Elisabetta Cipriani.

The Design Curio program reveals six of the latest viewpoints from today’s innovators and experimental designers and artists. This year’s program includes Delorenzo Gallery presenting Samuel and Dominic Amoia; Michael Jon & Alan presenting Charles Hollis Jones; Patricia Findlay presenting NO SEX in Miami by Atelier Biagetti; Plusdesign Gallery presents Streetscapes; Cora Sheibani presents Colour & Contradiction; and Virgil Abloh presents a special commission for the fair.

Design Visionary/
New York based SHoP Architects is this year’s recipient of the Panerai Design Miami/ Visionary Award, and has produced Design Miami’s largest commission to date. It will also be the first time that an award recipient’s work will be permanently installed in the Miami Design District following the fair. SHoP’s design, Flotsam & Jetsam, uses monumental 3D printed structural elements to create an environment that evokes the past romance and innovative future of Miami.

Design Collaborations/
At Design Miami/ 2016, new and returning design-led brands bring a host of inspired special projects to the Design Collaborations program. Audi presents The extra hour by LEGO, inspired by the Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept. “The extra hour,” the 25th, is a metaphor for a new kind of freedom and control over time.

Dean & DeLuca, the legendary New York gourmet market and leading international purveyor of fine food, is partnering with one of the world’s most innovative architects, Ole Scheeren, to create a prototype of his design for a unique food retail concept titled Stage. Stage presents a glowing, pristine object in polished stainless steel with the undulating topography of a bespoke, high tech display system, created for the powerful celebration of the preparation and presentation of food.

FENDI returns to Design Miami/ presenting a refined design collaboration, and Maison Perriet-Jouët marks its fifth year as a partner of Design Miami/ with a commission by American artist Andrew Kudless inspired by nature and the Maison’s Art Nouveau heritage. Louis Vuitton makes its debut at the fair with two new pieces for its Objets Nomades collection.

Airbnb will collaborate with Pedro&Juana, an emerging Mexico City-based design studio founded by Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo and Mecky Reuss. At Design Miami/ 2016, Airbnb and Pedro&Juana will present Sobremesa, a lively exploration of shared space. “Sobremesa” is the Mexican tradition of sharing time and space lingering around the table after a meal in casual conversation.

Fair newcomer, Compac, the established Spanish luxury composite surface manufacturer debuts with a site-specific installation by Paris based artist and designer Arik Levy.

Design Satellites/
For 2016, Design Miami/ welcomes various designers, institutions and organizations to create programming with strong curatorial, innovative and educational perspectives. Each satellite program reflects a contemporary view onto what’s happening in the design world at large.

As part of the Design Satellites, this year’s Collectors Lounge will be designed by award-winning Istanbul-based Tabanlıoğlu Architects. Established in 1990, Tabanlıoğlu is known for cultural projects such as the Istanbul Modern and Beyazit State Library.

Iconic illustrations from the archives of the late American illustrator, John Alcorn, serve as inspiration for this year’s fair identity as well as a limited edition mini-capsule collection in collaboration with Maison Kitsuné. The collection will be available at Design Miami/ and The Webster as well as online at Maison Kitsuné and at Kitsuné stores in Hong Kong, Paris, Tokyo and New York City.

CNN Style joins Design Miami/ as the official news outlet for the 2016 edition of the fair. The platform will have an on-site newsroom and broadcast live daily. National real estate brokerage Douglas Elliman will present this year’s Design Talks program in a new theater space designed by architects from real estate development firm, DDG, supported by the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University.

Design Miami/ partners with the United Nations on the launch of Building Legacy: Designing for Sustainability. The new platform aims to build momentum and a new movement for green infrastructure – one that will be designed and constructed in a manner that protects people and the planet for future generations. The platform will emphasize building and producing for people’s sustainable futures and will bring together designers, architects, developers and producers to promote concrete solutions. Working to support the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Building Legacy is a platform for the infrastructure, architecture and design communities. The program kicks off with the Building Legacy Opening Night Preview, by invitation only, and features four Building Legacy Talks at the fair.

In the theatre, a stage comes to life when the actors begin to perform. So it is with Lina Bo Bardi’s architecture. Her buildings are vibrant when inhabited: they come to life with the energy, diversity and creativity of people.

Lina Bo Bardi: Together pays tribute to Lina’s capacity to engage with every facet of culture and to see the potential in all manner of people. Artist Madelon Vriesendorp has conducted workshops at Solar do Unhão and combined objects made there with others of her own and artefacts by Brazilian craftspeople. Tapio Snellman’s film installation explores the life generated by SESC Pompéia within São Paulo and draws parallels with the city of Salvador. Combined, these two works do not merely recreate Lina’s methods or represent her work, but instead allow a more direct experience through a form of re-enactment.

Assemble designed and built a flexible enclosure, a set of display furniture and a technical system. The exhibition furniture designed by Assemble can adapt to a range of gallery situations and presents the diverse content within one space, without hierarchy. The furniture was cast using snowcrete with vermiculite aggregate, which was then hand-hammered to make a rough, gold flecked surface. The material palette and construction methodology learn directly from Lina Bo Bardi’s approach to making buildings, and the display of exhibition contents, without hierarchy, follows many of Lina’s own curatorial practices.

The exhibition is curated by Noemí Blager and presented by Arper. Major support to MCAD is provided by the Miami Design District and TWENTY TWO GROUP. Additional support is provided by Luminaire.

Downtown Boutique Hotel Invites Miamians to Pitch Their Ideas to Restore Old Post Office Building to Historic Grandeur

After beautifully restoring the historic Miami National Bank building and transforming it into The Langford Hotel, Miami-based Stambul Development today unveils details about the Old Post Office Development Contest, which invites local artists, urban planners, architects, students, engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and any other concerned Miamian to offer their personal vision of what should now become of the Old U.S. Post Office and Courthouse Building. Stambul Development encourages contestants to present ideas that are innovative, authentic, and original.

Stambul, a development and construction company specializing in the development of new structures including custom homes, commercial buildings and hospitality projects, recently embarked on a journey to revive downtown Miami. This journey began when Stambul teamed up with Coral Gables-based Trust Hospitality to convert the historic Beaux Arts edifice at 121 SE First Street into T

he Langford Hotel. Now that The Langford Hotel has become a reality, Stambul has strategically chosen The Old Post Office building as the next target of its revitalization efforts.

Located at the heart of downtown Miami at 100-118 Northeast Avenue, the Old Post Office is a significant landmark to the history of architecture, government, economics and community development in Miami. The four-story, Neo-Classical building was the first major federal facility in Miami, and was constructed over a three year period, from 1912-1914. It was designed by Kiehnel, Elliott and Oscar Wenderoth, and was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on January 4, 1989. The Miami-Dade County Tax Records say this building was built in 1917.

Contest Goals

The aim of the Old Post Office Development Contest is to restore the Old Post Office to its original, historic grandeur while also providing the best use for the building and serving the surrounding downtown market. Stambul Development seeks to seamlessly integrate the Old Post Office building with the downtown community, and develop a project that is feasible, profitable, and that will attract people to the downtown area.

Contest Schedule

The Old Post Office Development Contest will adhere to the following schedule: The contest begins on January 01, 2015 and ends on June 19, 2015 (the “Contest Period”). Registration (to be made on the Registration Page) opens at 9:00 a.m. EST on January 01, 2015, and closes at 5:00 p.m. EST on April 20, 2015. Registered Participants will be offered a guided visit to the Old Post Office Building at 9:00 a.m. EST on April 27, 2015. Participant submissions (“Proposals”) will be accepted from 9:00 a.m. EST on April 21, 2015 until 5:00 p.m. EST on June 5, 2015 (the “Proposal Period”). Winners will be announced on June 19, 2015.

Contest Prizes

The three most deserving projects will be chosen by a jury made up of members of the board of the company and local professionals based on the following criteria: creativity, feasibility, compliance with the contest’s goals, and innovation. The winners will have the opportunity to see their vision realized, showcase their Proposals at The Langford Hotel, and receive both a two-night stay at The Langford and one following money Prizes: First Prize: $5,000; Second Prize: $2,000; Third Prize: $1,000. If the winner is a team, the money prize will be divided equally among the registered team members.

Ten years ago, a small fair for collectible design named design.05 Miami launched concurrently with Art Basel Miami Beach. Located in the Moore Building in the Miami Design District, it offered a selection of fifteen invited exhibitors, with the stated aim of bringing museum-quality galleries together with the best collectors, connoisseurs, and designers from around the world in one of the premier destinations for art and design.

Remaining true to that aim, the intervening decade has seen the blossoming and expansion of the fair alongside the market for collectible design, evidenced by the number of participating galleries, which has almost tripled in that period. As it has matured, Design Miami/ has lead the field in establishing new global standards for creative and inspiring exhibitions, turning the fair into an essential destination for the design press and enthusiasts as well as collectors.

Rodman Primack, Executive Director of Design Miami/ stated, “The fair grew out of the need for a consolidated marketplace that would act as a platform to showcase the range and strength of what was then a fledgling market.” Adding, “Since then, the collectible design market has really changed in scale; it’s internationalized and diversified, and this is reflected very clearly in the fair. Design Miami/ has changed the way galleries engage with their audiences. I am excited to see this ecosystem bringing so many distinct viewpoints and aesthetics together.”

The burgeoning interest in contemporary design from around the US is particularly evident this year, with the invitation of first-time participants Edward Cella Art+Architecture of LA and Gallery Diet of Miami. These two newcomers to the fair are joined by returning participants Volume Gallery, Chicago and Johnson Trading Gallery from New York. Design Miami/ 2014 also welcomes regular participants of the Basel fair, Galleria O., Rome, specializing in Italian twentieth century and international contemporary design, Galerie Pascal Cuisinier from Paris, with their focus on French design from the 1960s and 70s, Carwan Gallery, Beirut, emphasizing work from Western designers interpreting Middle Eastern craft and Nilufar Gallery, Milan, known for Italian postwar design.

The Miami fair and its Basel sibling have maintained strong bonds with the founding galleries that participated in that first design.05 Miami. Eleven founding galleries of the original fifteen – including the previously mentioned Nilufar Gallery, Casati Gallery, Cristina Grajales Gallery, Demisch Danant, Galerie kreo, Galerie Patrick Seguin, Jousse Entreprise, LAFFANOUR-Galerie Downtown, Magen H Gallery, R & Company and Hostler Burrows – will be participating in Design Miami/ 2014.

Zesty Meyers, Principal of R & Company, New York commented, “I think what we’ve accomplished in ten years is amazing. Design Miami/ and Design Miami/ Basel have brought a global audience to us: because of them, I don’t know what languages will be spoken in my gallery today. The power of acting under the Design Miami/ umbrella as a group of galleries attracts buyers that we’d never attract individually – we keep on getting first time buyers. Because of the clients we have through Design Miami/, we can invest in scholarship and research; we can publish major books and hold museum shows. At a certain point, these pieces we are selling from the twentieth century will be gone – we’re saving history with these works, and creating future history with the contemporary.”

Equally excited by the future as it is inspired by the past, Design Miami/ is launching two new forward-looking initiatives this year: the exhibition strand Design Curio, and the Design Visionary award.

Conceived as contemporary cabinets of curiosity, the four independently curated Design Curio booths scattered throughout the fair will take the widest possible view of design practice. They will go beyond the scope of collectible design to embrace diverse fields from science and technology, to handcraft, and from unrealized prototypes to esoteric collections.

Design Visionary
The new Design Visionary award from Design Miami/ celebrates individuals who have significantly contributed to the field of design, such as collectors, curators, architects and luminaries who influence and are engaged in design in the broadest sense. The laureate of the Design Visionary award is recognized as having a continued, tangible and lasting impact.

The inaugural Design Visionary award will be presented to Peter Marino in December 2014. With this award, Design Miami/ recognizes Marino for his achievements as an architect, for his knowledge and status as a collector of design, art and the decorative arts, and for the impact he has had as an advisor on contemporary and twentieth century design to his numerous clients.

Commenting on the first edition of this award, Primack stated, “This award is about recognizing the figures that have really propelled the world of design in the broader sense. Peter is a great talent, and is also an amazing patron of others’ talents. His knowledge of furniture, his ability to create collections in design and his work with leading brands to help them understand the importance of bringing design voices into their world have substantially impacted the market and the language of design”.

Marino founded his eponymous architecture, planning and design studio in New York in 1978 having trained with I. M. Pei and George Nelson. Early clients included Andy Warhol, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, and Gianni and Marella Agnelli.

Alongside his work with private clients, Marino has redefined luxury in the retail space, creating store environments around the world for houses such as Chanel, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari, Graff and Ermenegildo Zegna, commissioning site specific works of art for many of them. His numerous collections include contemporary art and design, photographs, porcelain, and Renaissance and Baroque bronzes, the latter of which were shown at London’s Wallace Collection in 2010 in the exhibition Beauty and Power: Renaissance and Baroque Bronzes from the Peter Marino Collection. In 2012 he was named a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture.

At Design Miami/ 2014, Marino will be the subject of an exhibition celebrating his multiple roles within the world of design. In a stand-alone display space designed by the architect, the exhibition will feature antique and contemporary chairs from his collection, architectural maquettes and images, and his series of cast bronze boxes.

Pavilion Commission
Minneapolis-based designer Jonathan Muecke has been commissioned to create the Pavilion for the tenth anniversary of Design Miami/.

The Design Miami/ Pavilion Commission has become an important feature of the fair. An ephemeral extension of the fair space itself, the pavilion is at once an exhibit and a piece of functional temporary architecture. While the commission is traditionally given to an early career architect or studio, for its tenth anniversary Design Miami/ has selected a designer whose practice reflects the multifaceted nature of the fair itself.

Alexandra Cunningham Cameron, Creative Director at Design Miami/ commented, “For our tenth anniversary, we wanted to pay homage to the type of young designer that Design Miami/ wishes to champion – one who experiments with materials, form and scale; who is as much a theorist as a maker; and who challenges us to consider how we relate to the world built around us.”

Jonathan Muecke studied architecture at Iowa State, interning at the architectural office of Herzog & de Meuron in Basel, Switzerland before studying design at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Muecke has evolved a design practice that resists standard divisions between design, art and architecture, instead focusing on refined forms that investigate notions of positive and negative space, positional relationships to structures and the innate desire to read notions of functionality into objects that relate to human scale.

Centered around a double-layered circular structure with apertures at both poles, Jonathan Muecke’s Design Miami Pavilion (DMP) is designed on a human scale, rejecting monumentality in favor of lightness and variability. Filtered through a translucent canopy that shelters the whole structure, light will bounce off the curved and colored surfaces of the pavilion – complementary tones of red and green within, primary blue and yellow without – creating a shifting topography of reflected color. Seamlessly shaped seating units made from composite will allow visitors a moment of quiet reflection in a space conceived in part as a refuge from the hyper-stimulating environment of the fair itself.

Biggest Names in Architecture Reveal the Future of Design at The Residences at Park Grove

OMA architect Shohei Shigematsu and landscape architect Enzo Enea lead design talk

Miami (October 15, 2014)–A crowd of 250 top-tier brokers, buyers and tastemakers gathered to experience two of the most prominent global design talents for a look inside the visionary designs of the Residences at Park Grove, where Shohei Shigematsu from OMA and Enzo Enea blend the past and future of Coconut Grove. New renderings of the property were revealed for the first time last week, showing off the properties’ dazzling, uninterrupted views of the marina, landscape and idyllic Biscayne Bay. The towers’ distinct facades optimize these views from every angle, allowing for an abundance of natural light for its residents, coupled with maximum privacy between units. During the design talk, Shigematsu and Enea spoke about how their designs look at urbanistic and historical elements specific to the Grove’s existing climate and culture, such as the artists and musicians that occupy it, the greenery surrounding it, and the culture alive and thriving within it, enhancing the sense of place with the idiom: integrate, not decorate.

The hour-long discussion was moderated by Ted Loos, a design expert and regular contributor of Architectural Digest and hosted by co-developers of the property: David Martin, President of Terra Group and Carlos Rosso, President of Condo Development The Related Group.

Notable Guests: Enzo Enea, landscape architect; Shohei Shigematsu, OMA Architect; David Martin, President of Terra Group; Carlos Rosso, President Condo Development The Related Group; Patrick Campbell, Vice President The Related Group; Ted Loos, contributor of Architectural Digest and moderator of the discussion.

Art Days is designed to bring together and promote the cultural community, in addition to facilitating and incentivizing art exhibitions and other cultural activities. In its third year, Art Days, supported by the Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA), continues to provide free inspiring art activities across the Downtown cultural landscape. Working in partnership with a variety of arts and culture institutions, organizations and artists, Art Days is a three-day cultural exploration that incorporates countless free events and exhibitions for the community to experience and enjoy. Art Days offers something for everyone from family activities, panel discussions, international exhibitions, bike tours, walking tours and so much more!

Art Days is comprised of three components:
The Hub
located at MCAD, 100 NE 1st Ave, Miami, FL 33132
The “hub” is the epicenter for information on Art Days. In 2013 over 130 events took place around Downtown Miami, so it’s worthwhile to take a moment and set an itinerary to make the most out of the weekend!
The hub is the place to…
…find someone to help you navigate through the vast amount of things to do.
…start most walking and bike tours.
…be creative and paint your own unique t-shirt.
…hang out and connect with your friends on social media.
…find people to welcome you to Downtown Miami.

The Fringe
The “Fringe” is a set of curated activations of Downtown Miami in the form of visual and performance art projects. The visual art projects are commissioned, site-specific public art installations, curated by a specialist contemporary art curator Amanda Sanfilippo, and located within a one-mile radius around the Hub for easy walkability. This year’s Fringe has been initiated in partnership with Miami Dade County’s Art in Public Places.

The Events
Throughout the three day weekend, over 60 different art organizations, culture organizations, non-profits and artists activate their spaces with exhibitions, performances, cocktails meet and greet, art talks, panels and more. New for 2014 is an increased family friendly programming and children activities to accommodate the growing number of families living in Downtown.
Realizing the lack of performing arts in last year’s mix of events, the Miami DDA, in collaboration with the Olympia Theatre, is debuting a series of performance pieces in public areas and venues all around Downtown
As a guideline, here is a schedule for the weekend:
Thursday: Media/VIP Preview of the Fringe and Art Days
Friday: School tours/ Exhibitions openings/ post -work cocktail activities
Saturday: Museum day; art tours and exhibitions
Sunday: Cultural activities/bike tours

Lincoln, AIA Explore Similarities Between Luxury Auto Design and High-end Architecture

>Designers of luxury automobiles and architects of upscale buildings both need to create appealing, intimate and exclusive experiences for high-end clients in a functional environment

>Sophisticated, elegant design that is comfortable and efficient drives the creative process for both disciplines

>Each maximizes space while achieving a perfect balance of color and light complemented by rich materials to stimulate the senses

MIAMI, Feb. 27, 2014 – The goal of luxury automobile designers is to create a sense of occasion each time the highly discerning driver gets behind the wheel.

Architects of high-end buildings are challenged to achieve the same goal. Each discipline incorporates proportion, volume, sculpture, form, materials, graphics and space to provide unique luxury experiences that touch all the senses.

The similarities between these two worlds of design will be the subject of “Designing Luxury,” a panel discussion at the Miami Center for Architecture & Design.

“With any product or experience, the world of luxury design follows basic, yet vital, tenets,” said David Woodhouse, director of Lincoln design and a panelist. “Both luxury automobile designers and designers of high-end buildings need their creations to meet all the necessary functional requirements, but elevate the execution in a way that speaks to people’s aspirations, taps into their dreams and helps them stand apart from the crowd.”

Joining Woodhouse on the panel are two members of the American Institute of Architects: Rene Gonzalez, principal of Rene Gonzalez Architect, and Bernard Zyscovich, managing partner of Zyscovich Inc.

Moderating the dialogue is Javier F. Salman, senior project architect, Stantec, and also a member of AIA.

“I’m excited to learn about something I’m passionate about – automotive design – in a close and personal way and learn how it compares and contrasts to my particular brand of design,” said Salman, who owns a 1971 Lincoln Mark III.

This Lincoln Mark III – chocolate brown metallic exterior with bucket seats and brown interior – is one of a handful of cars owned by Salman, who repairs and restores vintage cars as a hobby.

The panel will explore designing luxury through best ways to interpret heritage and customer aspirations, then using these findings to create the luxury experience.

“Luxury automobile exterior design should be simple, inviting, approachable and most of all, elegant,” Woodhouse said. “Exterior design needs to be complemented by an interior that makes the driver feel comfortable and confident. Ultimately, the two work together to create an experience that is unique, personal and luxurious.

Integrating technology to create a warmer, more personal experience differentiates luxury automobile design. The Lincoln MKC small premium utility will debut Lincoln Experiences when it goes on sale later this year. Lincoln Experiences:

  • Anticipates needs and preferences – As you approach the vehicle it anticipates you, welcomes you and guides you with subtle and focused lighting where it is most needed.
  • Employs fluid, seamless motions and sounds – Unlocking and entering the vehicle is a fluid and effortless experience with refined motions and sounds, ambient lighting and crafted human interfaces.
  • Creates warm and inviting comfort – The cabin is a warm and inviting space with seating that embraces and forms around you, and appropriate ambient lighting to meet your needs and personal preferences.

“I am eager to listen to and participate in the exchange of ideas,” Woodhouse said. “I look forward to bringing back new perspectives I can employ in the automotive world.”
