A new arrival on the architectural landscape of Miami, the Museum Garage is an urban attraction that’s worth the trip.
If you went on holidays to Miami this summer, you won’t have missed the coloured contours of this 7-storey building.

Its structure is the result of collaboration between several architecture firms and artists, like Clavel Arquitectos, WORKac, Nicolas Buffe, J. Mayer H and Keenen/Riley. Together, they divided out the construction of the facades, giving rise to strong visual contrasts.

A cultural and social spot in the city centre
A mixed-use building, its collection of images is a playground for art and fashion, a stone’s throw from one of Florida’s most beautiful beaches.
