Lock Up Your Art Goodies! A Modern Day Vault is Coming to Miami!

While art collector's may breathe a sigh of relief to have over a 140,000 square feet of storage for their precious art collections, I’m more excited about the design of this building! Designed by Chad Oppenheim and slated for completion in early 2010 in Miami, The Vault will have a high-tech art storage facility with concierge-level services for owners seeking peace of mind and new ways of expanding their collections. The coolest part? As you can see in these pictures the exterior of The Vault will serve as an important public art installation. With constantly revolving panels featuring art by emerging and established artists, the prototype facility will look unlike any other storage location in North America. "Like the art to be housed inside, the facade of The Vault will engage the public in a dialogue and become a kind of social architecture that will enrich the lives of all who come in contact with it," describes Oppenheim. Revolving panels? A building that gives me people an experience? Amazing!
