Circle Game

Designer Jonathan Muecke creates an ingenious entrance for Design Miami.

Visitors to Design Miami 
have crossed some ingenious thresholds over the years. There was Formless-finder’s 500-ton mound of sand in 2013 
and Snarkitecture’s 2012 canopy of inflatable tubes. But this year, the new executive director, Rodman Primack, has opted for a pared-down pavilion, by the Minneapolis designer Jonathan Muecke, made up of two color-block walls that don’t quite connect to make a circle. “You can 
walk through it, or you can walk around it,” Muecke says. “I wanted to forgo traditional ideas of interior and exterior.” 
Adds Primack, “We liked 
that Jonathan’s proposal creates a pause, rather 
than an ‘OMG’ moment.”
