Aventura Slide Tower, FLORIDA


Public art has come to define cities and public spaces all over the world with complex and interactive installations that help activate and define a variety of places. As developers and artists become more interested in how these spaces can include interesting and placemaking installations, the art itself can become more and more complex and require experts in the field on process and management. 

Arisohn + Murphy was engaged to project manage the fabrication and installation of Carsten Höller, Aventura Slide Tower, that opened at the Aventura Mall in Aventura, Florida in December 2017. Over the course of 18-months, A+M led every aspect of the fabrication and installation, coordinating between the artist, client, gallery, fabricators, architect and multiple vendors spread across numerous time zones. As project leads, A+M liaised between all of the project stakeholders and also oversaw the project budget, schedule, invoicing, and all project documentation, while ensuring the design met all local building and permit requirements.
