Abstract: Four creatively designed buildings have recently opened in a new district in Miami Beach, Florida. Faena Forum, Faena Bazaar, Faena Park, and Faena Hotel Miami Beach grace a neighborhood that is the first in decades to be formally designated a district by the city, and these additions are expected to create a community-focused cultural epicenter for residents and visitors.
