Miami Worldcenter Will Feature Artwork by Berlin artist Franz Ackermann
The Miami Urban Development Review Board has approved a change to Miami Worldcenter's retail structure, also known as Block D.
The changes will allow the team to install artwork by Berlin artist Franz Ackermann on the east facade of Block D facing the Metromover tracks. In addition, the south and east facades will have an integrated projected panel system, while the north and west facades will have an extended artistic metal fin system.
Ackermann’s work has been exhibited in France, Germany and Tokyo and some of his paintings have a permanent home in New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
Block D, which is under construction and topped off last month, is a seven-story structure that will have 81,000 square feet of retail space and a 1,100-space parking garage. It is located on Northeast Second Avenue between Northeast Eighth and Ninth streets.
