프랭크 게리의 뉴월드센터 옆에 조성된 링컨파크 에요.
월드 센터의 야외공연장의 장소로도 활용되고 주로 이곳 주민들과
센터 이용자들을 위해 조성된 공원이네요.
공원을 가로 지르는 축선(보행자로)이 공원의 나누면서
구분되어지는 구역들에는 야자수와 폴리(스틸스트럭쳐)들이
자리 잡고 있어요.
뜨거운 태양볕 때문에 낮에는 차양이 필요한데 그 부분을 야자수와
폴리들이 보행자로 옆에 위치하여 적절히
사람들이 쉴 수 있도록 그늘을 제공해 주네요.
건축물을 설계하는 만큼이나 아웃도어의 랜드스케이핑을 하는 것이
건축하는 사람들은 건축에 위치를 잡기 위해 고민하지
적장 그 밖에 야외공간에는 힘을 쏟지 않는 경우가 허다하지요.

The Miami Beach Soundscape/Lincoln Park is littered with palm trees, pergolas and a meandering mosaic path, while an array of white aluminium wireframe structures mark the entry points of the park.
The landscape forms part of the New World Symphony campus and the orchestral academy will extend its program to the park with sound, theatre and video installations.
Video art and concerts will be projected onto a wall of the New World Centre, providing the park with a giant outdoor screen.

Grand opening West 8 and Frank Gehry in Miami Beach
On January 25 Miami Beach Soundscape / Lincoln Park, designed by Dutch firm West 8 opens to the public. The park is part of the New World Symphony campus of Pritzker prize-winning architect Frank Gehry.
In 2009 West 8’s winning design for Lincoln Park was unanimously
chosen by the Miami Beach Commission. The park is part of the New World
Symphony Campus, which includes a concert hall and a conservatory where
young talent coming to study and perform.
Lincoln Park is a new meeting place in town. Centrally located in the Art District at the monumental terminus of lively Lincoln Road, the park has multiple functions.
During the day the park is shaded by pergolas and palm trees. In the evening it is a cultural hotspot, one of the special attractions of the park being a video and sound installation – projecting concerts and video art on building’s 700m2 wall, which serves as an outdoor screen for the park. The park is an urban garden that expresses the euphoria of Miami, and will be actively programmed for public and cultural events.
The Lincoln Park site is a small – slightly larger than 1 hectare in size – urban site located at Washington Avenue and 17th Street in South Florida that strives to establish a new precedent for parks in the City of Miami Beach. While an urban park this size might often receive a design that has more hard surface than soft, Lincoln Park’s site-specific conditions, context and program elicited a unique response. A decision was made early in the design process for this public space to feel ‘green’ and more like a park.
With West 8 firmly positioned to deliver its mission of a green park, not a plaza, a park that feels intimate, shady, and soft was created; a park that will support the world-class attraction of the New World Symphony Building. Lincoln Park reflects the spirit and vitality of Miami Beach and will support a multitude of day and night uses, either under the shade of the trees or a starlit sky.
Lincoln Park will also have the wonder of some totally unique features that are one of a kind. First, several pergolas embrace the park edges; their shape inspired by the puffy cumulous clouds inherent in South Florida’s tropical climate. The hand-fabricated painted aluminium structures not only provide shade but will support the spectacular blooms of bougainvillea vines; highlighting a threshold of colour at the parks points of entry.
High quality artwork is equally important here, and the projection wall of the adjacent Symphony Hall building is an ideal ‘canvas’ for video projection artists – an emerging and exciting discipline within the art world. West 8 has designed a projection tower and ‘Ballet Bar’ to house the extensive multimedia equipment provided within the park. These elements provide a consistent language among the park’s unique architectural elements, providing a wide range number of possibilities for both local and international artists to present an ever-changing exhibit that would occur outside the confines of a traditional museum experience.
Soft, undulating topography is reinforced visually by a white concrete mosaic of meandering pathways, and white concrete seating walls that providing options for informal seating. These two critical elements of the park design allow Lincoln Park to convey the illusion of a park larger than its humble inherent size. ‘Veils’ of palm and specimen tree planting conceal and reveal views further reinforcing the experience of being within an oasis that is much larger.
Open to the public in January 2011, Lincoln Park is a unified expression of recreation, pleasure and culture. Combined with the momentum of the symphony halls uses and outstanding architecture, the New World Symphony campus will be a world class destination that marries music, design, and experience.
