Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale Expansion in Miami, Florida

This project transforms and re-invents the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, underlines the public dimension of the building and creates a place of encounters in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The project provides a new public identity to the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale. The Museum is turned inside out to welcome the community and connect the museum with the New River Bubier Park. The new Museum becomes a gateway to Downtown Fort Lauderdale and Las Olas Boulevard on Andrews Avenue to further pursue the civic role of the institution in the city.

The addition of a Super Front Porch upon the existing terrace creates an open-air gallery that expands museum space outdoors and acts as a nexus between the museum, the park and the river. Simultaneously, the intervention introduces a new public scale to the present day structure providing visibility and a clear point of entry to the Museum.

The Super Front Porch and terrace provide new meaning to the existing outdoor stair and together support alternative promenades through the building. Inside galleries upstairs are rearranged and a museum café and restaurant is incorporated next to the terrace. This transformation of the Museum interior, allows the Super Front Porch to work both in connection to the Museum and the park or independently after museum hours to encourage street life and culture in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The Super Front Porch is supported by a forest like series of unique columns and stands above the existing building roof level. The airy solution has a cooling effect that enhances the performance of the space. A vertical garden brings the park into the Museum as the views from the terrace connect back to the park.

Together with the unique columns supporting the Super Front Porch, a vertical wall drawing in the manner of interior wallpaper further defines the loggia like space as an outdoor room.  The “wallpaper” marks the extend of the porch, embraces visitors and underlines the individuality of the event.
