New World Center
Designed by the Dutch urban design & landscape architecture firm West 8, SoundScape Park is a 2.5-acre urban park in the cultural and civic heart of Miami Beach. Capturing the spirit and vitality of the city, it is a flexible, multi-use space adjacent to the New World Center. SoundScape Park serves as both an urban oasis and a gathering place for cultural and special events.
When art and nature come together the way they do in Soundscape Park, you get something you're unlikely to find at any of the other venues in Miami. The flowing lines of supports for running vines, combined with open spaces and shady stands of palm trees, gives the park a relaxing air. The mood is further enhanced when the New World Symphony can be heard from the park, adding a classical soundtrack to moments of relaxation in a comforting bower of nature, deep in the heart of the city.
