OMA study assisted by biologists, scientists unveiled its next impressive project in Miami beach called “The ReefLine”.
It will be nothing more, so to speak, than an underwater park, with a snorkeling trail and an artificial reef.
An impressive project as we were saying but first of all sustainable because The ReefLine will be a real artificial reef to protect and preserve the marine life of the city.
It will provide a habitat for endangered reef organisms, promoting biodiversity.
The project is based on an idea by Argentinean Ximena Caminos and also aims to raise public awareness of how climate change is causing irreversible damage such as rising sea levels.
Construction will begin next year and will be completed in seven stages. The first mile should finish in 2021. The first mile will be inaugurated with permanent installations by Argentine artist Leandro Erlich and Shohei Shigematsu.
The installed artworks will be made of materials similar to the structure and will be like an extension of the coral reef.
The artists who will have the honor of creating underwater installations will have access to a 3D printer able to replicate the artificial reef modules.
The ReefLine will extend for about 7 miles, consisting of geometric concrete modules, stacked at a depth of about 6 meters and about 247 meters. A futuristic project by OMA studio, which will give the city of Miami a unique park, never seen before.
