One of the most recognizable properties in Miami, The Moore was built by renowned architect, entrepreneur and financier David P. Davis during the 1920s Florida Land Boom. Set on a former pineapple plantation, the Neoclassical-style building served as a furniture showroom and warehouse for Moore and Sons. Its presence would influence the development and design of the surrounding area for 100 years to come.
An architectural anchor of the ever-evolving Miami landscape, The Moore serves as a crown jewel of the Miami Design District. Today, its classical elements are juxtaposed against Elastika — a site-specific installation spanning the four-story interior arcade of the building. Created by Pritzker Prize-winning architect, artist and designer Zaha Hadid, the work was commissioned by Miami Design District visionary Craig Robins and will remain a focal point and inspiration for the building’s next chapter.
