Ausschreibung „Miami Civic Center“

1. Februar 2010 Mehr

THE CHALLENGE

Whether it is despite or thanks to Miami’s vertiginous development, it never found its geographical center and urban gravitational center. Therefore Miami is composed of strips, avenues, suburbs and a small and week “business center” which give incidence to verticality, rather than the enjoyment of the horizontal urban space coincident with the Atlantic horizon. Miami is bridges and viaducts, highways and Malls, small neighborhoods adjacent to private housings. As Los Angeles urban model, Miami has never encountered a functional civic space within its self-proclaimed center, which allows people to enjoy the proper “place spirit”.

For this reason, ARQUITECTUM and A Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Miami) have decided to choose a troubled spot with huge potential, where the future of the human urban space will be debated, with a pedestrian scale which will allow gathering, enjoying shadows and living as any other city in the world; returning the public space its superiority over private and closed space such as Shopping Centers.

For this purpose, a basic and important program has been proposed, which includes a Catholic Cathedral, high cost living housing (lofts), a Civic Center, a small Contemporary Architecture Museum, as well as several plazas that reconfigure the new Center from within, leading the public open space to become the main object of the project.

NOTES:

The tariff costs are for “team” and not for each participant or member of the team.

If paid electronically, the participation fee does not include the IVA or IGV taxes, nor the commission corresponding to the credit card service provider. It is thus made clear that the net amount charged to the user’s account will be the fee shown in the Rules, plus the taxes and particular commission. If the contestant should want to pay a “flat” fee, he can do it through offline register.

Contestants must pay the fee within the corresponding deadlines. In other words, even in the case that he/she should register “Offline”, doing so outside the deadline means that he/she will have to pay the extra fare.
