Miami, FL | Photography by Robin Hill
The arena is home of the Miami Heat and is the venue for shows, concerts and public events. The site is located on Government Cut, near the Freedom Tower and Bayside Marketplace, and at the entrance to the Port of Miami. The project scope included plazas, rooftop terraces and at grade landscape areas. Curtis + Rogers was responsible for site paving, stairs, ramps, grading, planting, irrigation and the design of the patterned walkway along Biscayne Boulevard. The project was accomplished in collaboration with Arquitectonica. It was the first development in the then underutilized area of the City between downtown Miami and the Performing Arts complex.
