Miami Museum of Art / Perez Art Museum Miami – PAMM

Project Summary

Designer Jeremy Calleros Gauger, Senior Associate atArquitectonica Geo, wascommitted to providing a unique experience to visitors from the moment the step foot at the Museum. This meant they would have a tactile and visuallyappealing experience immediately when walking into the facility from the parking structure. He chose Gravelpave2 to give visitors that feeling. The sound and texture of Gravelpave2 matches the facade of the structure of the Museum. The parking structure has open canopies in the roof to let light in. The opening also allow for rain water to hit the parking structure floor. The other added benefit to Gravelpave2 is the porosity. The rainwater is allowed to filter through the drivable Gravelpave2 system. Designers also chose Gravelpave2 as an ADA surface for the trails around the sculpture garden. Gravelpave2 is stable and slip resistant for wheelchairs, walkers, canes, and more. Gravelpave2 was also used in the courtyard area overlooking the bay. Visitors can decent the staircase onto the Gravelpave2 surface and enjoy the view of the bay. The gravel fill was imported from outside Florida to match the texture and feel of the Museum structure. Several colors of granite gravel were mixed to get the correct composition in the gray Gravelpave2.
