Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the new Miami Art Museum will offer 200,000 square feet of programmable space, including 120,000 square feet of interior space – more than three times the size of the Museum’s current facility. It will also include approximately 80,000 square feet of exterior program space for the display of works of art, educational activities, relaxation and dining. This expansion will provide room for larger and more varied displays of the Museum’s collection and special exhibitions. The building will also house an educational complex with a library, auditorium, classrooms, and workshop space; and a café and store. The new design will stimulate and support collection growth and enable MAM to better fulfill its role as an educational resource for the city and beyond.
ADA is working with the museum architects and the design team through all aspects of Schematic Design, Design Documentation, Construction Documentation, Bidding and Negotiation and Construction Administration for the new Miami Art Museum. ADA is providing all site engineering design, permitting and has prepared plans for site remediation and removal/relocation of existing water mains and fire hydrants. ADA prepared the Soil Management Plans for the site and has also secured the necessary permits from the respective agencies to perform the site remediation work. ADA also participated in negotiations with FDOT District 6 to utilize a 1.11 acre tract north of the Museum’s site. This tract will be used for a proposed Sculpture Garden.
