Museum of Contemporary
Art Expansion

North Miami, FL

The proposed expansion of the North Miami Museum of Contemporary Art, known as MoCA, will more than double the museum's overall space to 54,000 square feet and more than triple its current exhibition space to 23,150 square feet. The expansion will increase museum space to allow public access to concurrent special exhibits and to the permanent collection. In addition, it will provide an education wing for classes and public programs, a new art storage facility and enhanced public areas. The LEED certified building will maintain and enhance its iconic image while providing the ultimate flexibility in programmatic space. The expansion plan is designed by Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman + Associates Architects in association with RJ Heisenbottle Architects.

The existing Museum of Contemporary Art's Joan Lehman Building, designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects is located between North Miami City Hall and the Police Headquarters. Completed in 1996, the Museum transformed a former parking lot into an urban art plaza and served as catalyst for the development of the town center as a cultural complex.

The new design will continue the original theme, creating a visual dialogue between the Police Building and City Hall. The public plaza, defined by 28 foot grid of 40 foot high palm trees at 125th street, will continue to serve as a space for community events and interaction.
