Balls and Stripes

At Lincoln Road Mall,  the popular outdoor pedestrianized street in South Beach, in Miami, art and bold architectural design define the public landscape and provide functionality to boot.

The large cement balls are a barrier to vehicles and demarcate pedestrian space. Stripes painted on the ground draw attention and offer a distinct aesthetic in sharp contrast to the sub-tropical pastels and palms look of SoBe.

A covered walkway is supported by white frames and provides cover for shoppers when the weather turns rainy, which can be often and unpredictable in South Florida.
