Project Description

FIU US Century Bank Arena Plaza (Panther Plaza)

Miller Legg provided landscape architecture services as a subconsultant to Gould Evans for the design of the FIU US Century Bank Arena Plaza.

The firm supplied planting, irrigation, lighting design, and assistance with the design of hardscape and site furnishing improvements.  Budgeted improvements are funded for $3.9 million in construction.  The design focused on providing an identity for the arena that is easily identifiable as South Florida while providing spatial organization that accommodates large crowds entering and exiting the arena. AIA Merit Award

The design showcases native Florida panther habitats. The project was awarded a 2012 State of Florida AIA Merit Design Award.
