Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the new Miami Art Museum will offer 200,000 square feet of programmable space, including 120,000 square feet of interior space - more than three times that of the Museum's current facility. It will also include approximately 80,000 square feet of exterior program space for the display of works of art, educational activities, relaxation and dining. This expansion will provide room for larger and more varied displays of the Museum's collection and special exhibitions. The building will also house an educational complex planned to foster active learning about and through art and art-making, with a library, auditorium, classrooms, art and digital media workshop spaces; and a café and store. The new design will stimulate and support collection growth, enable MAM to better fulfill its role as the principal visual arts educational resource in the region, and support the institution's expanded mission to serve local populations as a unique social forum.
Construction started on the new Miami Art Museum in January of 2011. As of March 2012, NextPlans had facilitated the storage of more than 12 Gigabytes of project information... thousands of files, consisting of CAD drawings, BIM models, plans, specifications, submittals, progress photos, RFI's, shop drawings, and more. In fact, although the project is still under-way, collection of close-out documents, such as warranties and operations and maintenance manuals has already begun. This project is a classic example of how the NextPlans system has enabled the project team to save significant time and money in the delivery of this 113 million dollar project.
