MIAMI S*PARK thinks big. The project is composed of three parts: Superpark, Axis and Active Edge. The Superpark is a continuous green carpet of gardens, urban agriculture, wetlands, and play fields with a collection of park pavilions. The Axis, the main civic space for Miami, begins in downtown and gently slopes into Biscayne Bay. A ribbon of public buildings including an architecture museum, the City Hall, and the Water Cathedral represent cultural, political, and religious faces of the city. The Active Edge adds density and a mix of uses along the promenade to create a working waterfront neighborhood. It was awarded first-place in a national design competition sponsored by the Miami chapter of the AIA.
