PALM COURT / by Eric Monteiro

Palm Court, the locus of the design District's luxury timepiece and jewelry brands, is also a premier open-air event space in the heart of Miami's upscale Design District. The landscape was designed by Island Planning Corporation, and over 50 graceful palm trees with tall, curving trunks dot the pedestrian plaza. The exclusive boutiques surrounding the plaza are housed in buildings designed by renowned architects Sou Fujimoto and Aranda/Lasch.

Public art installations by famous artists reside in the plaza, and the iconic geodesic dome designed by architect and inventor, Buckminster Fuller, is the grand centerpiece.
