West 8 confirmed by City for Miami Beach project

MiamiHerald.com reports

Dutch design firm West 8 will replace world-renowned architect Frank Gehry on a Miami Beach park project, the final component of the massive New World Symphony complex now under construction.

The firm was selected from a dozen applicants for the $13 million park project and ratified by the Miami Beach Commission in a 6-1 vote Wednesday.

Despite Gehry’s fame, West 8 was hailed by backers as better suited to design the park because of its experience in landscape architecture.
