Miami parking facility Museum Garage combines several exterior designs

Museum Garage is notable for the colourful contrasting sections across its exterior. Developer Craig Robins – who spearheaded the creation of the design district, north of downtown Miami – commissioned Terence Riley of Keenen/Riley (K/R) to come up with a bold facade treatment for the structure to make it stand out.

Riley, in turn, asked a handful of designers to create portions of the exterior. Across the facade are motifs by five international studios: WORKacJ Mayer HClavel Arquitectos, Nicolas Buffe and K/R itself.

“Cadavre Exquis, as the game is known in French, involved a collection of images assembled by various artists with no knowledge of what the other artists have drawn, producing one image whose components don;t necessarily match but flow together as one playful composition,” said the architect in a statement.

Each of the five designers was virtually given free reign to build out their portion of space, without much consideration for one another’s creations.

A decorative and bold statement piece that transformed the conventional parking garage into a landmark-like building. The recreation happened mainly through exterior of the garage.
