The Perez Art Museum Miami (also known as the Miami Art Museum), a public private partnership with the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County, was designed by Pritzker Prize winning architects Herzog & de Meuron and has transformed the Museum Park into a central destination on Miami’s cultural map. The three-story building has 200,000 square feet of programmable art display space, and sits on an elevated platform beneath a canopy that provides shaded verandas and a plaza.
Slag cement was used for its architectural effect on the concrete. A replacement level of 50% slag cement was selected to meet the architect’s color requirements for the finished exposed concrete, provide required design strength, and reduce the environmental footprint of the concrete.
