Students from the University of Miami School of Architecture have created concept designs for the Biscayne Line, the stretch of bay walk planned to boarder Edgewater. The Related Group, which is developing the Paraiso district, and the recently completed Icon Bay, both in Edgewater, sponsored the design studio at UM last fall.
Landscape design firm ArquitectonicaGEO was brought in to teach the course alongside professor Wyn Bradley. The students were tasked with finding thoughtful ways to handle problem areas along the stretch of the neighborhood, from the Julia Tuttle Causeway ramp/Albert Pallot Park to the edge of Margaret Pace Park, and to create an overall vision for the walkway. The students navigated the bay walk behind existing buildings with no right-of-way, around inlets, and over portions of the bay to connect with the Julia Tuttle Causeway.
