Miami Beach SoundScape at New World Center - a source and a destination for creativity and inspiration. Campus of the New World Symphony, America's Orchestral Academy. And a cultural icon in the center of Miami Beach. The Center is an inimitable foundation for a unique experience, one that you'll want to share with family and friends.

Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, New World Center features numerous spaces for performance and presentation; a flexible and variable seating performance hall, and a 7,000 square foot projection wall on which concerts, video art and films will be shown free-of-charge to audiences in Miami Beach SoundScape, a 2.5 acre public park, designed by Dutch architectural firm West 8.
