New World Center, the first purpose-built home for America’s Orchestral Academy, the New World Symphony, was realised earlier this year by the LA-based practice of the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry.

Located in Miami Beach, the state-of-the-art venue encompasses a number of training and performance facilities including a 756-seat concert hall and a multi-purpose pavilion designed to host a variety of performances, film screenings, lectures, meetings and recordings. The building’s façade also features a vast 7,000-square-foot projection wall which can be viewed from the adjoining outdoor area, ’Miami Beach SoundScape.’
