OMA's Faena Forum Takes Shape in Miami Beach

Construction is well underway on OMA's drum-shaped Faena Forum cultural centre in Miami Beach, which was influenced by the Guggenheim Museum in New York according to the project's lead architect.

The 42,565-square-foot building (3,954 square metres) is made up of a cylindrical hall fixed to a rectangular box.

Its scale and distinctive form were inspired in part by the size and shape of Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic Manhattan museum, according Shohei Shigematsu, a partner at Dutch firm OMA's New York office.
