On Friday afternoon, the Pritzker family, Pritzker laureates and Craig Robins are unveiling a tent structure at the New World Center in Miami Beach, which will move to Miami’s Design District later this year.

The installation was designed by this year’s Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, German architect Frei Otto, according to a press release. Otto, who designed the tent as a music pavilion for the 1955 Federal Garden Exhibition in Kassel, Germany, passed away this year.

The Pritzker family, one of the largest philanthropic families in the U.S., built Hyatt Hotels Corp., as well as the Pritzker Architecture Prize, among other ventures. Zaha Hadid, who is designing One Thousand Museum in downtown Miami, was the first woman to win the award.

The structure was installed outside of the New World Center, at 500 17th Street, until Saturday. — Katherine Kallergis
