ArquitectonicaGEO Proposes WynwoodWalks as part of the Streetscape and Street Tree Master Plan Project - First Look
WynwoodWalks would become a network of pathways, edge parks, woonerfs, and a wellness loop connecting the entire neighborhood.
Three living streets known as woonerfs are proposed, including NW 3rd Avenue (already in design by Brooklyn’s Local Office Landscape), NW 1st Avenue, and NW 1st Place. Those streets would be primarily designed for pedestrians and cyclists and as a social gathering space.
At the eastern and western edges of the neighborhood, two linear parks spanning .59 and .46 miles are proposed, with wellness amenities and a focus on connecting to nature. One park would run along the Brightline rail tracks first built by Henry Flagler and would be known as Flagler Trail.
A network of linear parkways with oversized medians containing art and landscaping is also proposed, including North Miami Avenue and NW 29th Street which connects to Midtown Miami.
For the remainder of the neighborhood, shade trees were on top of the most wanted list when community surveys were conducted, ArquitectonicaGEO reported. “Tierrita designs,” with parklets, groves, and bioswales are also planned.
The preliminary presentation is below. It was first publicly presented at a community meeting on December 11.
Slated to open to residents in the Fall of 2019, the Student Housing Village is the first phase of the University’s 10-year strategic plan to modernize its student housing facilities. Over the next decade, new on-campus housing will re-define what it means to live, learn, work and meet at the University of Miami. From its ground-level community spaces including a large exhibition center and a 200-seat auditorium to its modern suites and apartments for 1,115 upperclass students, the village aims to set a new standard in campus housing.
Slated to be a cultural landmark for downtown Naples, Gulfshore Playhouse has announced the selection of its architectural firm for its new theatre and education center. A major presence on the national and international architectural stage, H3, a design studio within Arquitectonica specializing in theatres and arts and culture buildings, has designed some of the most prominent theaters in the country, including the Claire Tow Theatre and Vivian Beaumont Theatre at Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center, the Dijon Performing Arts Center in France, the Theatre for a New Audience in New York, the renovation of Radio City Music Hall and the Denver Performing Arts Center, the nation’s second largest center for the arts after the Lincoln Center.
