C+R’s new plaza at Miami Dade College’s Wolfson Parking Garage in the heart of Downtown Miami is almost complete! Nestled between the campus’ of Miami Dade College and the New World School of the Arts, the plaza allows an oasis for students to study and relax in a lush green environment in stark contrast to the existing urban environment.
The plaza design offers a variety of open spaces for impromptu performances and art exhibits as well as cozy modern furnishings with places to gather or lay on a lawn. The adjacent white wall flanking the park is envisioned to be a new mural designed and implemented by the local youth and a backdrop for the new urban plaza. Expected completion is Fall 2016!

C+R is excited to show the sneak peak preview of the newly completed green roof we designed in collaboration with HOK at the New Miami Dade Children’s Courthouse. The drought tolerant plant materials are planted in soft curvy beds reminiscent from above of the patterns and textures created in the Everglades by slowly moving water.
