New World Center

Miami Beach, FL

The home of the New World Symphony, this innovative facility features an acoustic music space of 756 seats which can be adjusted to suit a full orchestra or solo performers.  The theater is equipped as an Internet classroom and transmission capability with large acoustic “sails” which double as projection screens. Performances can be projected onto a 7,000 sf screen-wall outside, facing the adjacent park. The structure is steel braced frames tied by the roof diaphragm and is built to resist hurricanes of south Florida.
