Made in Opa-Locka

Made in Opa-locka transforms Miami’s most notorious neighborhood, The Triangle, into a vibrant collection of small businesses and civic spaces. The MOL project team works with artists and residents to design and start small businesses centered around arts, technology, and community services. These community hubs are transforming Opa-locka into Miami-Dade’s newest destination for making, learning, working, and connecting.

Urbanistic Intent

Made in Opa-locka presents a new model for architectural practice that is simultaneously research and realization; both critical and rooted in the difficult realities of race, class, and economics; and that is opportunistic in leveraging new sources of funding for experimental architecture in the public realm.
