Zaha Hadid has been chosen by the City of Miami Beach to design its newest parking garage at Collins Park, a neighborhood that's home to the Miami City Ballet, the Bass Museum, the City Library as well as the Gansevoort, W and Setai luxury hotels.
Collins Park is also just blocks away from the Miami Beach Convention Center, the Frank Gehry-designed New World Center and the popular automobile-free Lincoln Road Mall.
"This is a great opportunity for the City of Miami Beach to expand its commitment to leading edge architectural design," commented Matti Bower, Mayor of the City of Miami Beach.
"Even our parking garages are more than a group of parking spaces. Some have become destinations within themselves and have attained individual iconic status.
Every building can be a work of art. We are pleased to work with Ms. Hadid and we are delighted with her contemporary and brilliant design for our newest parking garage."
