Plan Z for Miami: FROM INFRASTRUCTURE TO OPEN SPACE
Plan Z for Miami: FROM INFRASTRUCTURE TO OPEN SPACE looks at how Plan Z for Miami transforms the Rickenbacker Causeway from a dangerous roadway into an active urban park. The concept for Plan Z for Miami was generated in response to the continuing deaths of cyclists on the Rickenbacker Causeway in Miami Dade County. Architect and urban planner Bernard Zyscovich, an ardent lifelong cyclist himself, determined to find a way to make the Rickenbacker Causeway safe for joggers, strollers, walkers, and cyclists. Bernard has developed a plan that will transform the unsafe infrastructure into a safe, lively, multi-purposed 20-acre urban park where urban dwellers can “get out of town” without having to leave the city. Curated and sponsored by Plan Z for Miami, a nonprofit foundation, the exhibit illustrates how a strictly utilitarian roadway can be reimagined to become a safe, lively, multi-purpose urban park with twenty acres of new waterfront park space.
