"Composed of steel, fabric and a continuous surface of glass, the Climate Ribbon™ is an approximately $20 million elevated trellis that will span 150,000 square feet connecting all parcels of Brickell CityCentre and creating a comfortable microclimate for shoppers through the use of passive energy devices. The Climate Ribbon™ serves multiple purposes: acting as a shade for the project’s walkways, shops, restaurants, escalators and terraces to protect visitors from rain and sunlight, creating air flow to optimize temperatures and collecting rainwater for reuse, all while allowing Brickell CityCentre shopping to be open air and naturally lit."

Thorough research and design have gone into engineering the Climate Ribbon™ to accomplish the lofty environmental goals of Brickell CityCentre. With the project spread across four city blocks, the trellis will span all of the parcels providing a sense of connectivity and unifying Brickell CityCentre into one architectural statement. Since the outdoor shopping area will not be air conditioned, the Climate Ribbon™ is designed to harness summer trade winds and Biscayne Bay breezes to keep air flowing between six to nine knots through the public spaces. To address Miami’s strong sun, sections of the Climate Ribbon™ will be designed at strategic angles and set at varying heights to best reflect the rays.
