Palm Court is a premier event space and pedestrian plaza located in Miami’s up-and-coming Design District. Designed by Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto and Aranda/Lasch, Palm Court is a place in which public art installations abound in a visually appealing and modern outdoor space. Surrounded by top-of-the-line jewelry stores, Palm Court is a tree-lined oasis that hosts live concert series, family day trips and art tours. Just 3 miles from Downtown Miami, this is a neighborhood you’ll want to see while visiting the Magic City.
Palm Court is about 3 miles north of YVE Hotel Miami, with paid parking available. For public transit options, guests can take bus route 3 to Aventura Mall, boarding at the station across the street from the hotel. Once the bus reaches Biscayne Blvd. and NE 36th Street, walk west on 38th-39th Street. Palm Court will be on your right.
The Design District is home to over 70 art galleries and is only growing. Palm Court is one of those spaces. Public art installations in Palm Court include the towering fiberglass Le Corbusier bust by Xavier Veilham and Netscape swings by Konstantin Grcic. The centerpiece of the courtyard is a geodesic dome, made to resemble a fly’s eye. The dome is the creation of architect and inventor Buckminster Fuller and makes for an eye-catching nightlight. Make sure to check out the district’s sculpture gardens, fine art galleries, theater/venue spaces, showrooms and studios. Experience forward-thinking design and art amidst world-class shops.
Palm Court maintains an active profile, with weekly live performances produced by 19-time Grammy-winning producer Emilio Estefan. Palm Court’s event calendar includes family days, art tours, and other cultural activities. See the full upcoming calendar on the Design District website.
