Frank Gehry designed this auditorium built in 2011 and it is an architectural masterpiece! If you have the time go to one of the many concerts and marvel at the auditorium's arena and its hydrolic wonders.

The New World Center is an architectural gem on Miami Beach--inside and outside. The concerts are high caliber and the fact that these are all accomplished students makes them even more impressive. Check out the Concerts for kids and the Friday evening concernts!
