WELCOME TO ALTOS DEL MAR SCULPTURE PARK (ADMSP)! ...

WELCOME TO ALTOS DEL MAR SCULPTURE PARK (ADMSP)!

If your senses ignite at the sight of an interesting piece of art and your spirit craves a place to be one with the breeze, the ocean and the trees, soon your utopia will arrive. A place where harmony rules and butterflies live. Step within a realm where contradictions thrive, a place that is both soothing and exciting, beautiful and jarring, still and flowing, moving and stationary, evolutionary and timeless, organic and mechanic.

We are building the first sculpture park of its kind in the world as it will feature:

FREE changing exhibitions of sculpture from established artists from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries.

FREE community art classes, fitness and entertainment.

FREE social services to the under-served community through financial support to other local charities that provide social services.

365 days per year in the North Beach section of Miami Beach, Florida.

ADMSP will transform North Beach into a community, cultural, tourism and travel destination elevating the quality of life and economy for all.

We are building a place that although at first glance is a sculpture park, upon further inspection it reveals itself as an important community installation with cultural, social and economic implications that extend well beyond the sculptures and the traditional museum audiences- for EVERYONE!

Altos del Mar Sculpture Park Landscape Design Concept Altos del Mar Sculpture Park Landscape Design Concept Presentation Transcript

  • LANDSCAPE DESIGN CONCEPT
  • THE OBJECTIVES
  • The objective is to create a unique sculpture park to serve as a community, cultural, tourism and travel destination asset to the City of Miami Beach, the North Beach community to elevate the quality of life and economy for all. The objective is to accomplish this with a sculpture park that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future by utilizing subtle interventions and ecologically harmonious materials, trees and plants thereby conserving the land while using it as a park with sculptures. View slide
  • Margarita Blanco from ArquitectonicaGeo and her team donated their services pro bono to ADMSP to create the sculpture park landscape design. ArquitectonicaGeo’s site plan and design include sound policies for managing the property according the highest principles accorded to ocean-front parkland by using materials such as tumbled recycled glass, recycled wooden planks, crushed shell, and coral stone which undulate and extrude creating a variety of display areas for the sculptures as well as a central lawn for educational programming. These surfaces protect high traffic areas from foot traffic, and reduce irrigation demands. View slide
  • The plans take into account the neighborhood context. The park will result in creating a pedestrian link to the public park spaces to the north and south, and provide current and future residents with a cultural and educational programs destination in conjunction with the other parks. The sculpture park will continue to provide a quiet and relaxing oasis in a sculpture setting. The openness of the space, views of the ocean and sky, and gently rolling topography will continue per the site plan and design of ArquitectonicaGeo. It will combine to provide a sense of peace and tranquility, even though Collins Avenue runs along its western edge.
  • THE DESIGN INSPIRATION
  • Miami Beach is a barrier island formed by an accumulation of sediment on limestone shoals Altos del Mar park is ocean front parkland within the urban framework of the North Beach community.
  • ArquitectonicaGEO’s design concept inspiration is an abstract interpretation of limestone geology found in Miami Beach, ocean-front parkland and urban life: all of which inform the aesthetics and layout of the space to be: A landscaped gallery space with four naturally divided rooms that will change from an allée, to dunes, to a maritime planting palette with a butterfly vivarium, to a lawn which the visitor can find his way as he way-finds along undulating paths as the sculptures change from contemporary to figurative to abstract.
  • Lawn Wayfinding helps the wanderer choose a pathway within the landscaped gallery rooms
  • pathways can be formed by the wayfinder
  • Pathways will be from recycled materials
  • The Tree Allées Seen from Collins Avenue to the driver and occasional pedestrian, they open up views into the park announcing it to the community. Pathways are made of stepping stones and coral stone bands set in lawn creating a path that encourages the user to choose their own way to come up onto the Lawn which sits in the center of the park allowing for a further discovery of the park.
  • Tree Allées open views into park
  • The Tree Allées exhibit abstract sculptures. Abstract Sculptures consist of 20th-century Western sculpture that rejects representation and has no starting- or finishing- point in nature.
  • The Dunefield Seen from beach and from the recreational beach walkway, the dunefield creates an invitation for the wanderer to go see what is in that dunefield. Contemporary sculptures are a part of the experience while walking on recycled tumbled glass as it weaves through the sand dunes.
  • Dunes serve as backdrops for the Sculptures
  • The Dunefield exhibits contemporary sculptures. “Contemporary Sculptures” are sculptures from World War II to the present time.
  • The Maritime Garden Seen from the beach and the recreational beach walkway, it creates the same invitation to go in and see what is in that maritime garden. Crushed sea shell and recycled wooden planks meander through dense planting areas providing backdrops for the sculptures and shady seating areas for relaxation and contemplation unless you stumble upon the Butterfly Vivarium.
  • Maritime Garden Creates Invitation to Go In
  • The Maritime Garden exhibits figurative sculptures “Figurative Sculptures” are representational and derive from real object sources such the human figure, animal figure, and any other form that retains a strong reference to the real world.
  • The Butterfly Vivarium The Butterfly Vivarium is a simulation of the butterflies' normal habitat where they naturally live or grow. Unfortunately, many natural butterfly habitats are being destroyed by the elimination of weeds and native grasses from yards, chemical pesticides, parks and roadways, as well as the deforestation of tropical rainforests. In South Florida, many butterfly feeding and breeding grounds have been destroyed also because of urbanization, and as a result the Schaus Swallowtail and the Miami Blue native to South Florida are in the U.S. Federal List of Endangered Species. At ADMSP these rare species will live and thrive. The Butterfly Habitat will also educate visitors of all ages about Florida native butterflies and their habitat.
  • Butterfly Vivarium
  • Native to South Florida the Schaus Swallowtail is in the U.S. Federal List of Endangered Species.
  • Native to South Florida the Miami Blue is in the U.S. Federal List of Endangered Species.
  • The Butterfly Habitat will also educate visitors of all ages about Florida native butterflies, their habitat and conservation.
  • The Lawn will serve a the gathering place for community programs
  • Community Programs at the Lawn
  • THE EXHIBITION THEMES
  • The themes of the planned exhibitions are: The Triumph of Modernism This exhibition focuses on the the 20th century’s most important invention in sculpture: Abstraction (art that does not imitate the appearance of things). The Fascination of Technology This exhibition focuses on towering sculptures characterized by the rationality, purposefulness, and the predictability of architectural design. New Departures 1945 - 1960 This exhibition focuses on the post WWII shift toward redefinition and re-formation of the figure. Post Modernism and More This exhibition focuses on the radical shifts and new currents after the 1960’s such as Minimal Art, Arte Povera, Fluxus, Pop Art, Land Art and Installation.
  • Exhibitions of Sculpture
  • THE COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING
  • ADMSP will offer the following programs to the community at the Lawn: Guided park tours by an art historian; Art classes; Classical music, jazz or other music events that are cultural in nature Book author readings; Kite flying; Outdoor Cinema; Fitness classes such as Yoga, Aerobics, Pilates, Ballet, Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Meditation Live butterfly releases ADMSP will also be available for rental for limited private events such as wedding ceremonies, baptisms, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays, graduations, and other such events. The types of programs listed here are a sample of the types of programs ADMSP can offer. Each can be modified for various groups and needs.
  • THE SOCIAL PROGRAMMING
  • ADMSP will offer social programs to the under-served community through financial support of local charities that offer services to this community by sponsoring: I. Workshops for Single Mothers II. Workshops for Illegal Aliens III. Workshops for the Homeless IV. Workshops for Drug Addiction V. Workshops for Skills and Job Training The goal of such workshops is to reach the under-served and non-traditional museum audience and put our messages of learning into practice not only through art, fitness and entertainment but through workshops designed for the under-served to seek solutions to socioeconomic and other inequities that affect the quality of life for many in North Beach.
  • THE PUBLIC AMENITIES
  • Altos Del Mar Sculpture Park will offer an entrance pavilion on the south east corner of the park. The entrance gate itself shall consist of a sculpture of the park logo which has been designed to be a stylized jungle gym. The entrance pavilion will have an information booth, water- fountains, toilets, benches and other required public amenities.
  • Jungle Gym Sculpture (how will it look?)
  • Drinking fountains should be usable from either a standing or sitting position. This Their controls computerized should be easily information reached and station's controls operated by can be accessed everyone. Dual by people of all height fountains statures from are an effective either a standing solution. or sitting position. This lavatory's two counter heights and motion activated faucets provide accommodations that are usable by a wide range of users. Because this towel dispenser does not require the user to grasp controls or turn the wrist, it can be operated by almost everyone. Public Amenities
  • THE MATERIALS
  • What does the word CONSERVATION mean to ADMSP? Conservation is the careful management of change. It is about revealing and sharing the significance of a place and ensuring that its special qualities are protected, enhanced, enjoyed and understood by present and future generations. As a result, ADMSP will create a unique park that meets the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future by utilizing subtle interventions and ecologically harmonious materials, trees and plants thereby conserving the land while using it as a park with sculptures.
  • THE MATERIALS The plans include sound policies for managing the pathways and grounds according the highest principles accorded to ocean front park property by using materials such as tumbled recycled glass, recycled wooden planks, crushed shell, and coral stone bands which undulate and extrude creating a variety of display areas for the sculptures. These surfaces protect high traffic areas from foot traffic, and reduce irrigation demands.
  • Recyclable, sustainable, natural and coastal native elements
  • In the tree allées, paths are made of stepping stones and coral stone bands set in lawn creating paths that encourages the user to choose their own way. In the dunefield, paths are made of recycled tumbled glass as it weaves through the sand dunes. In the maritime garden, crushed sea shell and recycled wooden planks meander through out unless you stumble upon the butterfly vivarium where well...what you see are beautiful butterflies and it does not matter what you walk on really... The lawn will be a type that thrive in a heavy use, salty, windy environment.
  • The Tree Allées The materials would consist of native south Florida trees, grass, stepping stones and coral stone bands.
  • The Dunefield The materials would consist of native south Florida dune plantings, and recycled tumbled glass.
  • The Maritime Garden The materials would consist of native south Florida maritime plants, crushed sea shell and recycled wooden planks.
  • The Butterfly Vivarium The materials would include larval plants like milkweed, marigolds, Queen Anne’s lace, and violets; nectar plants like the butterfly bush, the beauty bush, sunflowers, lilacs, snapdragons, and zinnias to support two different species that already call Miami Beach home but which are in the endangered species list: the Schaus Swallowtail and the Miami Blue. The layout will include rocks, a little waterfall and little hiding niches.
  • The Lawn The material would consist of grass suitable for the high traffic use, tolerant of drought, heavy rains and salt water.
