DawnTown is the annual public international architecture ideas competition for Downtown Miami. Our mission is to bring creative and innovative design solutions to Downtown Miami, and to help tell the exciting urban story of downtown Miami to the world. This year, we will expand by incorporating a design program within the limits of the City of Miami.
The focus of DawnTown in its fourth year is: The Floating Stage.
Very close to downtown Miami is the historic Miami Marine Stadium. Only recently have efforts been undertaken to restore this monumental piece of modernist architecture. The Floating Stage is an element of the stadium that was used years ago that held a variety of different live performances. Our goal is to inspire designers to create a new stage, one that can travel around Biscayne Bay and other waterfront destinations in the city, to provide a unique architectural structure for all to enjoy.
