PEREZ ART MUSEUM OF MIAMI
Herzog & de Meuron have designed a building which 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. Chisel & Mouse were approached by PAMM to recreate the museum in stunning miniature form. We worked from plans and artistic representations at the same time as the building itself was receiving its finishing touches. The detailed sculpture is made using a combination of 3D print, plaster, wood and metal etching, and was released on the same day as the museum opened at the beginning of December 2013.
