The iconic pergolas are welcoming gateways and shade structures at Miami Beach SoundScape‟s entrances. Three pergolas reach into the space, inviting people to access the interior spaces.

These West 8 designed custom features are a sculptural abstraction of the fluffy cumulus clouds inherent to Miami Beach. Each pergola is composed of metal and be capable of withstanding South Florida weather. Flowering vines reach from the base to the edges, reinforcing the park points of entry and providing a burst of color and shade.
