Rachely Rotem Studio: Design Entry Selected for Art Basel Miami Beach 2010

Rachely Rotem Studio (with Phu Hoang Office) has been selected as the winning competition entry for the Art Basel Miami Beach and Creative Time Oceanfront project.

Their design will create a public art venue for the annual Art Basel Miami Beach contemporary art fair. The Exhale pavilion harnesses this essential formlessness to create a dynamic interactive environment for public art. The twenty-five thousand square foot beach site in Miami Beach will be temporarily transformed by seven miles of hanging ropes swaying in the wind. The form of the pavilion literally shifts with the weather, producing an open, flexible and dynamic environment. Occupying an entire city block directly at the heart of Miami Beach’s waterfront, the Oceanfront exhibition area will be purpose-built for the presentation of contemporary art, performance, video, and live music every night.
