Starchitecture is alive and prosperous in Miami – year after year, the city is adding new buildings designed by starchitects, from the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and 1111 Lincoln Road (deemed the most amazing parking garage you’ve ever seen) designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Faena District by Rem Koolhaas’ OMA (Office for Metropolitan Architecture), the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science designed by Grimshaw Architects, the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts by Cesar Pelli or the New World Center by Frank Gehry.
