Portal To The Future

Miami has joined the major league of cities with rail mass transit connections to their airports with the opening of the Metrorail station at MIA. Like the grand rail terminals of the past, this station has striking architectural elements – notably a stainless-steel clad canopy that rotates and tapers. The American Institute of Architects Florida/Caribbean Chapter gave the station a merit award of excellence.

A stainless steel canopy defines the station and gives a sense of movement to the station

The station is part of the Miami Intermodal Center, which was designed as a hub for buses, Tri-Rail and even future high-speed rail service. The canopy dynamically hovers above to define the platform space. The connector level vestibule, defined by an “art in public places” glass enclosure intervention, leads patrons to the airport. Here are more insights from Perez & Perez Associates about the project: – Using a continuous rhythm of structural columns throughout the 1,000-foot long site to organize and integrate the bus and rail facilities. – Providing elements common to other Metrorail stations, but making this one a stand out as a landmark. – Designing the stainless steel clad canopy to be the signature structure expressing the concept of movement and contrasting with existing nondescript stations. – Strategically placing linear openings in the canopy to provide natural light and a visual frame to follow the rotation of the canopy. – Utilizing the linear patterns of the openings in other parts of the station, such as the bus canopies in the lower level, the south entrance canopy and the floor pattern.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
