Home to Miami's New World Symphony, this Miami Beach building designed by Frank Gehry debuted in early 2011. Architectural elements include embellishments on the building's facade that resemble Scotch tape origami, along with an unusual flipped-up awning. The enormous campus—which fills two city blocks and houses a concert hall, an opera house, and teaching space—showcases public performances led by conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, founder of the NWS. An egalitarian touch is the free simulcasting of concerts on a 7,000-square-foot exterior wall throughout the year. —Terry Ward
