If you’ve been reading for a while, you know by now that I get very excited when I come across amazing things being brought to Miami. Innovations in the world of high-end architecture and design are wondrous and meant to be shared with everyone.

Whether is it art exhibits or design events I love to share them with you. It’s a great thing I have this blog!

Opening this year in Miami is the brand new Brickell Shopping Center, an epic en plein air mall. The most state-of the art feature called the “Climate Ribbon” will keep the shoppers cool in the heat.

The “Climate Ribbon” is a thousand-foot cascading canopy of crumpled steel and clear insulating glass. This environmentally sustainable mass will run over and through four city blocks.

It is engineered to admit natural light while shading shoppers and channeling the breeze. This amazing invention is the first of its kind and will be showcasing here in Miami!
