In a conceptual design study for an MLS expansion team in Miami, MEIS put Miami’s vibrant culture at the core of its design process.
Drawing on the dramatic mid-century architecture of historic Miami, MEIS’s design also considers variable such as the tropical climate, strong Caribbean and Latino influence, vibrant art scene and, of course, the inherent beach and party culture of the city.
The iconic form of the stadium features a “wandering concourse”, which weaves in and out of an outer perforated scrim façade. This concourse design allows for programming such as amphitheaters, fan zones, balconies and party decks to be connected to the interior stadium while not limited to the constraints of the façade. This unique feature blurs the line between the lush Miami landscape and the dynamic stadium space and atmosphere.
An equally exciting programing of the surrounding site focuses on the design of event plazas that can become programmable outdoor venues for fashion shows, concerts and unique product launches.
