Design Miami Makeover


Eager to become an experience that transcends that of a traditional trade fair, the organisers of the sixth Design Miami show have commissioned architects Moorhead & Moorhead to design an innovative new venue.

The temporary structure will be formed from traditional tent materials, manipulated to produce a latticework surface. This will enable sunshine to penetrate the interior, creating intriguing displays of light and shadow.

For the floor plan, New York-based architects Aranda/Lasch have devised a scatter design – inspired by medieval cities. With this, they aim to create a more open layout, with improved visibility and more meeting spaces than you would expect to find at a trade fair.
