Miami Beach Wall

Miami Beach Wall is a speculative project that imagines a new kind of inhabitable infrastructure. The project is an instance of what could be integral in a city wide solution in protecting Miami from the impact of storm surges and other extreme weather events.  

 

The project uses simulation software to generate and explore a topography which relates to the placement of a vegetated, defensive wall structure and the forces of storm surges from the ocean. 

 

The result is a secluded, biophilic beach front area that is full of kiosks and shaded respite from the Florida sunshine
