Miami Brickell Center


The Brickell City Centre is a major commercial development by Swire Properties on three city blocks in downtown Miami. The “Climate RibbonTM” is an architectural feature covering the pedestrian streetscape across distinct blocks, linking the development into a single architectural statement. It provides shelter for the shops and circulations below and for the bridges over public roads. HDA are designers for the Climate RibbonTM, a continuous surface of glass (11,000 m2) and architectural fabric sun-screening blades which has been fine-tuned to provide an effective microclimate within the centre, attenuating the discomfort associated with hot and humid Miami weather solely through the use of passive energy strategies. This unique urban element of the project is emblematic in both its environmental and aesthetic qualities. It shades the facades of shops and terraces directly exposed to strong sunlight and creates air circulation to improve comfort, harnessing the summer trade winds by the use of scoop features which pull gentle breezes through the public spaces.
