Miami Beach officials are looking to starchitects to create a Lincoln Road District Master Plan, specifically Bjarke Ingels Group and James Corner Field Operations.

However, the entire project is currently under a ‘Cone of Silence’ — a law to prevent city employees from talking about the project before a winning bidder, according to Curbed.

But according to an announcement on Bjarke Ingels’ website:

“A jury of six local retailers, business owners and city officials narrowed the field of possible architects down to BIG and Field Operations. The next step is for Miami Beach’s City Manager to engage with both and select one winning team.” [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
