Latin American Art Miami (LAAM) by FR-EE Architects

A private art collector, who specializes in modern and contemporary art from Latin America, is developing his well-known gallery into a new museum: the Latin American Art Miami (LAAM). He invited FR-EE to design the first home for the museum. The collection includes artists such as Diego Rivera, Fernando Botero, Wifredo Lam, Guillermo Kutica, Roberto Matta, Rufino Tamayo, among others.

The building is inspired by the different sections of the urban composite of Miami, whose outline gives shape to each of the four levels. The floors create generous terraces, which blur the border between indoors and outdoors, and transform the spaces into real “sculptural gardens”.

Different levels define the program of the museum. The first floor is reserved for emergent artists, the second will house temporary exhibitions, and the third will show a selection of works of the permanent collection. A restaurant will be located on the fourth and uppermost floor.
