Met Square Miami

In downtown Miami, Florida, a significant archaeological find was discovered on a site planned for development. The site contains evidence of American Indian settlement that predates American history. The site is also the location of the Royal Palm Hotel, built by Henry Flagler and one of the earliest buildings constructed in Miami. We were hired by developers to establish and to appropriately present and interpret these artifacts. Working with the landscape architecture firm, Olin, Biederman Redevelopment Corporation, Edens, Marriot International, and MDM Development, we developed a schematic plan for exhibit elements within the building and in an adjacent public plaza. Development of an interior gallery space within the planned building space to act as a museum to interpret the significance of the site. Our ideas were presented to the Historic Preservation Board of Miami to gain approval to proceed with development of the site.
