On December 4, 2013, the Miami Art Museum will reopen as the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) in its new Herzog and de Meuron-designed facility. With its reopening, the Museum will strengthen its role as a vital cultural and educational center, serving as a resource commensurate with Miami’s thriving community of artists, designers, and collectors, its art-engaged public, and the location of one of the world’s most important art fairs, Art Basel Miami Beach. The Museum will continue to serve one of the most diverse populations in one of the fastest growing regions in the country, where a confluence of Caribbean, North American, and South American cultures adds vibrancy and variety to civic activity.

PAMM’s design reflects the natural and urban landscape of Miami and responds to the city’s rapid growth as a cultural destination. The facility is situated on the northeast side, bordering the MacArthur Causeway, with its front façade oriented toward the green space of the park, the bay, and the city, making it a highly visible landmark amid Miami’s cityscape. PAMM includes 32,000 square feet of galleries as well as education facilities, a shop, waterfront café, and exterior plazas and gardens. The new building supports the institution’s expanded mission to serve local populations as a dynamic social forum, stimulating collection growth and enabling the Museum to better fulfill its role as the principal contemporary visual arts and educational resource in the region.
