Designed by Studio BONNER & Stayner Architects, Eight Thousand Two Hundred Fifteen is a proposal for an entrance plaza and children’s play area for Zoo  and -Dade Art in Public Places. Emerging from the uncontrollability of hydrology and urbanism, the 80,000 ft2 paving system is comprised of thousands of pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete surfaces that mutate from horizontal to vertical at key points, both adaptive and constantly changing.
