Recycled Stadium Signage
The Orange Bowl stadium was a Miami landmark for 71 years until its demolition in 2008. Built on the site is the Marlins Park, home stadium of the Miami Marlins.
To commemorate the original stadium, Art in Public Places commissioned Snarkitecture to design this public artwork called A Memorial Bowing, and features the original ‘MIAMI ORANGE BOWL’ signage letters.
Scattered throughout the Marlins Park, these ten-foot tall letters have been installed in various positions, from standing to partially submerged, to capture the moment between destruction and rebuilding of the stadiums. As visitors move around the letters form words from different perspectives.
Snarkitecture is a collaborative practice blending art and architecture, established by Alex Mustonen and Daniel Arsham
