Following over two years of planning and construction, the Miami Design District welcomed the Museum Garage to its city fabric. Terence Riley, of K/R Architect, led the concept of the ambitious project, which drew from Exquisite Corpse, a surrealist parlor game that entails the collaging of images by different authors independent of each other’s designs.

In the spirit of the game, five architecture and design firms designed an individual and radically different facade as disparate and unconnected pieces, creating a multifaceted tapestry for the utilitarian structure. The garage’s animated, wildly varied facades are designed by WORKac, Clavel Arquitectos, Nicolas Buffe, K/R and J. MAYER. H.

Our facade XOX’s appears as gigantic interlocking puzzle pieces that nestle at the corner with the forms of WORKac’s design. XOX’s enigmatic forms, emblazoned with stripes and bright colors, recall the aerodynamic forms of automotive design and appear to float above the sidewalk below. Smaller volumes, covered in metal screens project outward and are activated with embedded light at night.
