DawnTown Miami is an annual architecture ideas competition meant to bring creative and inspiring new solutions to Downtown Miami. Now in its fourth year, DawnTown is partnering with a local historic preservation group to help bring prominence to an early piece of Miami's modern architecture period. This year's contest topic is to design a complimenting structure to the Miami Marine Stadium in an effort to allow the historic site to become a great event space once again: The new structure will be The Floating Stage.
The competition seeks out fresh and inventive designs that will help promote not only downtown but the City of Miami, and it's historical connections to modern architecture.
