An Oasis in the City

Miami Beach Soundscape, Miami Beach, Florida, USA

Miami Beach Soundscape Park is the green heart of Frank Gehry’s New World Symphony campus, a world-class destination that marries music, design, and culture.

The soft, undulating topography is visually reinforced by a white concrete mosaic of meandering pathways and provides options for informal seating through coordinated concrete ledges. Veils of palms and specimen tree plantings work together to create an intimate oasis experience by concealing and revealing views. Together, the urban oasis creates an illusion of a park much larger than its 2.5-acre envelope.

From parking lot to contemporary park, Soundscape is a cultural destination where visitors can unwind under the shade of the trees or a starlit sky.

A Performing Landscape: Supporting large events and informal gatherings while referencing and responding to South Florida’s tropical climate.
