The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is a contemporary art museum that relocated in 2013 to the Museum Park in Downtown Miami, Florida. Herzog & de Meuron's design for the new building is highly responsive to the city's climate and the needs of a young, rising art museum. The three-story building sits upon an elevated platform and below a canopy, both of which extend far beyond the museum's walls, creating a shaded veranda and plazas. Working with local and international landscape designers and horticulturists, the architects use this space to ?bring the park into the museum? in new and innovative ways. The new building for PAMM has drawn critical acclaim. For example, the Wall Street Journal stressed that their design could be instrumental in making the museum a destination and the New York Times called the design "spectacular" The Perez Art Museum Miami was chosen for the 2015 America Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) Professional Awards.

I'm only giving this 4 stars because the entrance completely failed to announce itself - coming from the west end of the parking I walked right past it thinking, because it was a wall of wood, it was a service entrance or loading point. Also, there was no clear route thru so I found myself meandering, back-tracking, etc and wondering if I'd missed anything. Also, they made the standard error of not considering where the ice-cream fridge goes in the cafe so it's in the standard place of 'shoved wherever it'll fit' completely ruining the visual cleanliness of the space.
Otherwise it's a great piece of human design with all sorts of Aalto-esque touches and a theme of 'occupying space between inside and out/within the wall'.
