The design team at BC3 began design and construction document work for the Miami Center for Architecture and Design, the Non-Profit 501c arm of the American Institute of Architects Miami Chapter. The scope involves converting the original bank lobby into an exhibition/office/conference space to house the Chapter's Headquarters and weekly events.
South Florida slash pine is one of the most well known natives in the area. This tree represents the South Florida Pine Rockland landscape, a very endangered natural eco-system, and because of its shape this tree provides an extraordinary spatial relationship with the sky. Generally tall airy with tufts of pines needles mostly at the top of the canopy--this absent of density allows other surrounding plants to receive sunlight and coexist.
