Miami Brickell Center
Toward the eastern end of Brickell City Centre, the Climate Ribbon™ gently lifts up to create a ‘scoop’ that captures trade winds in the summer. Designed to allow natural light while shading shoppers and channelling prevailing breezes from Biscayne Bay to cool them.
The primary objective is to provide optimization of environmental quality for the shopping centre.
The structure is designed to obtain three key benefits:
- ventilation (avoid the use of air conditioning)
- shelter from inclement weather
- shading from the sun
