With Art Basel Miami Beach rolling into town soon, news is coming hard and fast of everything that will be happening that week. Already revealed: Design Miami/'s new home for this year's edition, which will not be taking place in Miami's Design District. Instead,it will move closed to its sister fair, Art Basel,
to the parking lot across the Miami Beach Convention Center at the Meridian Avenue and 19th Street.
This year's temporary structure, which in Design Miami/'s case is more than just a large white tent, is designed by New York architects Moorhead & Moorhead. The interior is designed by architects Aranda\Lasch and will abandon the traditional trade show grid for a more scattered approach for a more miniature city feel. Hopefully, it won't be too difficult to navigate.
Of course, the tent that houses the fair is almost as interesting as the fair itself -- just check out the photos of Design Miami/ 2009 -- so we expect it to be nothing short of spectacular. The fair takes place December 1 to 5. General admission is $25.
