Future of Shade Competition

In Miami, sunshine defines our lives, from providing ideal beach conditions for play and relaxation to baking us as we go about our days working and shopping. That’s why we’re excited to be involved with the Sunbrella® Future of Shade competition in partnership with Architizer, the largest online community of architects and designers.

In its fourth year, the competition seeks thoughtful shade designs that reimagine how shade functionally, aesthetically and emotionally influences a space. With three categories that offer distinct challenges to entrants, Building Shade, Humanitarian and Wellness Garden, one grand prize winner in each category will receive $10,000.

And this year, the Building Shade category focuses on creating a shade design for Paradise Plaza and adjoining Paseo Ponti, currently under development in the Miami Design District. A specially appointed jury of the Miami Design District will review entrants in the Building Shade category and consider one design for further development.
