We have previously featured 1111 Lincoln Road by Herzog & de Meuron. We focused mostly on the building and interior design, but the landscape is equally note worthy and should not be missed. Raymond Jungles, the project's landscape architect, generously shared with us the project from his perspective. The design for 1111 Lincoln Road bridges the urban dweller with nature, affording vantage points and multi-functional areas for the users of this foremost pedestrian mall in Florida. The roadway turned greenway and waterway is an Everglades-inspired aquatic-infused environment where specimen Cypress trees anchor the “urban glade” within the pedestrian plaza. The re-pedestrianized block of Lincoln Road has created an unparalleled variant of civic space in Miami Beach. Lincoln Road Mall, built in 1960, is located in Miami Beach, Florida, a 7.1 square mile island between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. 1111 Lincoln Road is one block of a mile-long pedestrian mall consisting of a series of blocks running west from Alton Road to its eastern terminus at Washington Avenue, with each block bound by north/south street automobile crossings.
