Design + Architecture

The Visionaries

On the horizon: New World Symphony hall, Miami Beach

Miami Beach's indigenous Art Deco and gelato-colored buildings are as big a tourist attraction as its beaches and nightlife (well, for some). Now several starchitects are adding their signature to the city, including Gehry himself. His proposed concert hall for the New World Symphony aims to repeat the positive clamor created with his Walt Disney Concert Hall in L.A., a gleaming DeCon (that's deconstructivist in archispeak) landmark with fantastic acoustics. The Miami project—pegged for completion in 2010—is more structured than his L.A concert hall: A series of unevenly stacked stainless-steel cubes are arranged underneath a white concrete frame, playing off Miami Beach's Deco heritage.
