THE MIAMI MARINE STADIUM INFLATABLE

minirenderPROJECT INFLATABLE

Can the Miami Marine Stadium be saved?

Project INFLATABLE re-energizes and completely revitalizes Miami Marine Stadium into a major venue for performances while simultaneously creating one of Miami’s newest icons.We believe that the strong visual identity of project INFLATABLE will draw much needed attention to the existing Marine Stadium, but more importantly, be used to establish a connection to the city of Miami itself.

Location: Miami, Florida

Miami Marine Stadium

An Modern Icon in Distress

The Miami Marine Stadium is a modern masterpiece designed by Hilario Candela and built in 1963. It has since fallen into dissrepair after years of disregard and vandalism. PINKCLOUD.DK intends to draw attention to this neglected beauty through a design of our own…

The Design Focus

Our design focused on three main agendas. Firstly, no one wants a headache, it must be easy to use + transport. Secondly, to convince skeptical tax payers, it has to be cheap! Lastly, to attract attention to this cause, it must have an unique identity!

Project INFLATABLE!

Utilizing helium as the main form of structure, Project INFLATABLE achieves a vast span of 280ft; it is tied down by six anchor cables. The vast size of the floating disc serves three main purposes, to allow for maximum flexibility and shade for the stage below, at the same time creating a large visual icon able to be seen from downtown Miami.

Helium = Large Span without excessive Structure!

The use of helium allows for easy setup, quick transport, while achieving a massive diameter with as little support as possible! It can also be quickly taken apart and stored as well!

How the INFLATABLE works

The floating disc itself is perforated to allow for natural light onto the stage creating a unique spatial experience for those below. The large surface area above allows for the installation of PV solar panels generating electricity for the LED lights below.

Miami Marine Stadium – Revitalized

We strongly believe that the design of Project INFLATABLE will serve as the catalyst for the development and revitalization of the Miami Marine Stadium. By building a strong public connection to the existing stadium, project INFLATABLE seeks to provide an exciting and unique experience that will establish itself as the new destination for the people of Miami and beyond.
