OMA Completes Faena Forum In Miami Beach

Nov 30, 2016

Dutch firm, OMA, has finished its perforated design structure of “Faena Forum” Art and Performance Centre in Miami Beach, the heart of a new ocean-side cultural district.

Launching the same week as Design Miami 2016, the 3,954-square-metre project is sponsored by the Argentinian hotelier and property developer Alan Faena. 

It comprises two blocks: a cylindrical events hall, affixed to a cuboid containing a hotel and meeting rooms. This 12-metre-high roof spans an auditorium, positioned above a bar and reception area, while an Assembly Hall spreads across the third floor of both blocks. For an added touch of elegance, the interior is topped by a domed ceiling with a glazed oculus in its center.

The Faena Forum is strategically placed on the 33rd Street, at the center of the Faena District Miami Beach, extending between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian Creek channel, in order to fit with Faena’s vision of “culture” remarks Shohei Shigematsu, Partner, OMA.

The new cultural forum will become a sister institution to the arts centre in the Faena District Buenos Aires, Faena's first major development that spreads along a section of the waterfront in the Argentinian capital.
