Text description of the architects. Manufactured by ALT BLD of Atlanta, GA, gt2P’s Conscious Actions are designed to be thought-provoking. The play includes a range of interactive, architectural, playground-inspired devices that invite users to enjoy the carefree fun of childhood while being reminded of the direct impact each action has on our environment and communities.

Every device is activated by physical, natural forces. When users generate energy through these forces, they are rewarded with effects such as reactive shadows, transformative surfaces, and kinetic movements. The installations will be installed in various locations in the Miami Design District and will offer a range of thought-provoking experiences. In addition, gt2P will develop programs around the installation, working with local community organizations dedicated to nurturing and supporting tomorrow’s leaders.

“Art is an expression of our humanity. It’s a conversation, a link that defines and redefines our collective and individual experiences, ”said Craig Robins, President and CEO of DACRA. “Great art evokes emotions and intellectual rigor and challenges us to look at the world around us in different ways. By providing interactive installations like Conscious Actions, we aim to continue to play a key role in Miami’s ever-growing cultural fabric and encourage positive change in the community. “Gt2P was founded in 2009 in Santiago, Chile, and is a studio founded by partners Tamara Pérez, Sebastián Rozas, Victor Imperiale and Guillermo Parada.

The multidisciplinary design collective is involved in projects in the fields of architecture, art and design. Gt2P’s work combines digital manufacturing and traditional practical production methods and has been exhibited in numerous international institutions, including the Design Museum London, the Henan Museum in China and the Museum of Art & Design in New York. The studio’s work is also in the permanent collections of the Denver Art Museum and the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. “We are very excited to be part of this project that has enabled us to expand our work on public art projects beyond Chile.

We love this type of installation because it allows us to connect with a large audience, ”explained gt2P. “We’d like to thank the Miami Design District and the Anava Projects team for inviting us to think about a socially conscious project and to open up this new avenue for our studio.

We will certainly start families of these interactive devices in the future and develop more public spaces that encourage people to think about how our actions affect our environment. “Every winter, the Miami Design District hires a creative studio to redefine the environment of the neighborhood through a public installation. The installations are woven through the main passageways of the neighborhood and typically include native trees, architecture and outdoor sculptures to create a unique one To create an experience for visitors.
