PAMM CucuyoMiami, USA

PAMM Cucuyo is an innovative outdoor mobile café designed by BBAmiami at the Perez Art Museum Miami. Cucuyo establishes a conversation with its context, the beautifully designed museum by Herzog and de Meuron, where the café is located. As it sits on the outdoor terrace overlooking the bay, its strong, self-contained elliptical shape that recalls eggs and cocoons stands in contrast to the rectilinear and orthogonal elements of the building. Produced entirely in stainless steel and 3D printed in the Netherlands by MX3D, the cafe is moveable, contains all the necessary equipment, adapts to special events, and can be disassembled. An AIA Award winner for its fantastic detailing, Cucuyo is an elegant and functional addition to the museum.
