why we're doing it

Sound Garden @ Bayfront Park will activate a portion of the park that is currently inactive and underutilized. Sound Garden is thoughtfully addressing the intent of development density to urban areas and community connectivity. According to the Metro Atlantic, Downtown Miami’s population nearly doubled during the past ten years. Residing in such dense areas, paradoxically, can lead to what clinicians call “loneliness in crowds”. A recent study by Movoto Real Estate ranked Miami as the third most stressed out city in the nation. Sound Garden will address the impact of our external environment on our quality of life, and the role that our exposure to music and nature plays in an urban environment.  Researchers have found that listening to soothing music coupled with exposure to nature offers a variety of benefits to city dwellers, from improving mood and memory, to community unification and enhancement in quality of life.
