The Museum Garage is not your typical parking garage. Craig Robins, the CEO of Dacra Development, set out to build a parking garage that would be the most interesting structure in Miami. It was to be located in the Design District, a part of the city dedicated to architecture, art and innovation. Five architectural and design firms were hired for the project, each designing a different segment of the of the facility’s exterior. Speirs + Major was retained as the lighting designer. The result was an extremely modern and unique mashup of colors and styles that is anything but the average parking garage. In fact, it is a very successful, award-winning project.
 

The Plexineon accent lighting draws attention to laser-cut engravings that were inspired by Japanese anime and designed by French artist Nicholas Buffe.

The designer did not want a reflection of pixelated lights and, having used Plexineon before, knew Plexineon would emit a pleasing, uniform distribution of light.
