The Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County is Florida’s largest performing arts center located in downtown Miami.  The facility embraces excellence, housing state-of-the-art performance spaces, multipurpose spaces, restaurants and complementary amenity spaces.  The two buildings that make up the center are linked by an outdoor oval-shaped plaza, bisected by Biscayne Boulevard.
GBBN was recruited to the design team at a point during construction when the entire project was being restructured and helped deliver the complicated facility on the promised schedule.

GBBN Architects in collaboration with Pelli Clarke Pelli.
