500 Block of Collins

Miami Beach, Florida

Client: Rabina Realty
Architect: Zyscovich Architects
Completion: 2002

Located at a busy intersection along Miami’s South Beach strip the upper storys of this retail center/parking garage have been dressed in constantly undulating color patterns. The colors have been programmed to help passersby celebrate various holidays and special events with a pulsing red heart for Valentine’s Day, a jack-o-lantern for Halloween, and a waving flag for the Fourth of July among others. The color show was designed to be a daily feature and the building displays a variety of color programs throughout non-holiday evenings as well.
