As it stands, the Miami Beach Convention Center is nowhere near being the standard for green sustainable architecture, but that’s about to change.

Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) has unveiled plans to transform the 52-acre site, creating the Miami Beach Square, a pedestrian-friendly space in front of the center. The renovations of the existing building will include an ambitious green roof which will also support art exhibitions.

The entire project is meant to revitalize the area: the new Miami Beach Square will act as a front door to the Convention Center.
