FAENA FORUM, FAENA BAZAAR AND PARK

OMA as Architects

Faena District Located on a majestic stretch of beach in the heart of Miami Beach, Faena District encompasses both sides of Collins Avenue from 32nd to 35th Streets, with direct waterfront views of the Atlantic Ocean and Indian Creek. Faena District will provide the city of Miami Beach with a neighborhood integrating dynamic cultural, residential, hotel, retail, culinary and public environments with a dynamic combination of art, culture, and design as their foundation. OMA has designed three buildings for Faena District—Faena Forum, Faena Bazaar and Park. These distinct structures are linked by a sequence of public areas including an entry plaza on Collins Avenue and an open courtyard within the Faena Bazaar.

Faena Forum Size: 42,565 square feet with a performance hall of 6,700 square feet Opening Date: November 28, 2016 Description: Faena Forum has been designed as a series of large flexible spaces that can accommodate a variety of events from a temporary culinary pop up to an acoustically optimal concert, with everything in between the realms of traditional art galleries to new and innovative cultural programs. Two volumes, a classic cylinder and a black box cube that are similar in size, can be combined or subdivided to support any type of production, from projects and commissions to performances, exhibitions and events. An exterior plaza along Collins Avenue features a 46-foot cantilever and reflecting pool upon arrival. The cantilever is supported by a structural facade of concrete cast as a series of arches and catenary curves, overlaid with a hurricane grid. The structural façade of 350 distinct windows also allows for vast column free spaces on the building’s two main levels. The lobby amphitheater features Rosa Portugal pink marble floors and technical capabilities for surround projections. The upper floor assembly hall features a 40-foot-high dome with a central glazed oculus and a floor-to-ceiling window overlooking Indian Creek that can also be used for loading large scale art. A walkway that spirals up the interior wall of the Forum from street level to the top of the dome provides visitors with a range of perspectives on the space and additional seating. Combined, the balcony spiral, dome and cube have the capacity to host over 1,000 visitors.

Faena Bazaar Size: 20,074 square feet Opening Date: March 2017 Description: Faena Bazaar is a renovation of the historic Atlantic Beach Hotel, built in 1939 and designed by prominent Miami Beach architect Roy France, whose work includes the Saxony and Versailles, both part of Faena District. In addition to preserving the building’s original façade details and lobby entrance, OMA’s design inserted an intimate central courtyard, unified by privacy screen and a penthouse terrace with views to the Atlantic Ocean. The Bazaar will provide curated ground floor retail and event space in upper levels.

Faena Park Size: 28,283 square feet Opening Date: November 28, 2016 Description: Faena Park is a state-of-the-art parking structure with a capacity for 81 cars, as well as retail spaces at the street and top level. The 28,000 square foot structure features a mechanical system with parking lifts that stacks cars 2 per space for maximum efficiency. An exposed glass shaftway on 35th street reveals the vehicular and passenger movement within the building’s structure. The precast concrete façade features angled perforations allowing for ventilation and controlled views, subtlety reflecting the color of cars parked within The elevators descend to a subterranean level of parking that connects all three sites with a capacity for an additional 154 cars. Faena Park will be programmed with street level retail and an upper level retail area with views to the Atlantic Ocean.\
