A ceremonial groundbreaking took place on Wednesday for Frank Gehry’s new home for the New World Symphony orchestra in Miami Beach. The $200 million building, featuring a 700-seat performance hall, will be part of a campus located behind the orchestra’s existing facility, Lincoln Theatre. “Though its simple, rectilinear design doesn’t offer the daring of the titanium-roofed Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, or the audacious sail-like curves of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, the yet-to-be-named facility will solve logistical problems faced by the New World Symphony,”The Miami Herald wrote on January 22. The orchestra’s current home has “acoustical deficiencies and technological limitations,” its president and CEO told the paper; Gehry’s new 107,000-square-foot building is expected to solve them and provide more space for training and public outreach. Gehry is also designing an adjacent public park and parking garage, which will cost an additional $35 million. The complex is expected to open in 2010.
