The South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center is a performing arts center that houses a 966-seat theater on three levels, an orchestra pit, stage area with fly loft space, dressing rooms, administrative offices and a rehearsal room. Visitors are greeted by a 70-foot (22-meter) high lobby space integrating a dramatic lighting scheme from artist Robert Chambers.
The adjacent 7,500 SF (700 m2) Activities Building adds rehearsal, small-scale performance and classroom spaces across a promenade that joins the two buildings. To the south, a concert ‘Green’ — where outdoor concerts, festivals, and art fairs are hosted — slopes gently towards the Black Creek Canal.
