To this end, this 100 meter long structure will point out to sea off Miami Beach and will house a museum in which the personal effects, souvenirs and photos belonging to the new generation of immigrants will be exhibited – those who came to the city of Miami from the 1950s to the 1980s in search of their own personal American Dream.
To this end, this “Pier-Museum” will not only function as an architectural landmark, but will also serve as a space commemorating the new urban dynamic of the city, the global multiculturalism which defines the beginning of the 21st century. The museum will possess a basic lay-out that will occupy an area of approximately 2,000 m2 and include the following spaces: Entrance Hall, Temporary Exhibition Room, Permanent Exhibition Room, Storage Facilities, Restrooms, Maintenance Facility, Security, Offices and Cafeteria.
The “Pier-Museum” should be a readily identifiable object, able to impose its presence within the existing urban profile and landscape of the beach area. However, competitors may choose to present proposals of a totally experimental nature which incorporate ideas as diametrically opposed as the subordination of the architecture in the context of the urban profile and landscape and the creation of a new model which might serve to redefine the idea of a “monument” in the context of the architectural debate regarding the paradisiacal and the cosmopolitan.
