Field Trip to MAM construction site
It was hot and we had to wear hard hats, but we totally enjoyed riding the MetroRail to MAM's future location in Museum Park. We got a great tour from the Landscape Architect and the Contractor and actually learned a lot about the construction process and the materials, especially the way that they create different textures in concrete.
We got to see a sample of what the "vertical gardens" are going to look like and some of the plants that they plan to use. Our city is going to have one of the most awesome art museums in the world! Wow!!!
It was a tiring day, but we learned a lot. The ride on the MetroRail was great. A lot of us had never been on the MetroRail before. It was a whole new way to see the city of Miami!
