In trying to reinvigorate the areas surrounding Miami, the proposed Marine Stadium and Floating Stage located in the Virginia Key Beach area would not only draw tourists, but bringing with it significant development opportunities. As a multifunctional and adaptive design, the Stadium and Stage would provide visitors the opportunity to experience a diverse range of events ranging from concerts to expositions in both the day and night.

As part of an ongoing environmental initiative, the design of the Stadium and Stage includes the use of solar electric panels to directly convert the sun’s energy into electricity. This process occurs without moving parts, is silent and is pollution free in its operation, not to mention its efficiency given Miami’s sunny disposition. The benefits are also economical, as predictions now show that solar energy will become the cheapest power source in 10 years.
