Do It

A neighborhood built by the hands of the local creatives and innovators

Brett Hudson

Wynwood, Miami, FL

The LAB Miami, a collaborative campus of creatives and entrepreneurs in the heart of Wynwood, is taking this neighborhood’s energy, talent and goodwill to an entirely new level. We’re asking the question, “What if you could enable an entire entrepreneurial community’s collective talent and brainpower to solve large-scale problems? Where would you start?”

Enter the “Idea Garden.”

The LAB is crossing the artistic, “do-it-yourself” creative vibe of Wynwood with the civic needs of the neighborhood. By leveraging the local creative community’s talent, we will build Wynwood’s first green open space that also reflects the atmosphere of The LAB and neighborhood: a congregation point for creativity, ideation and innovation.

We can replicate this model throughout Wynwood, ultimately greening multiple properties to create a long-term, community-driven, sustainable neighborhood that serves as a model to the rest of the nation.

      I love your project Brett! Wondering if you have links to any other civic design projects you've done?

      • Brett Hudson

        We're just getting started. More to come though!

        • Alessandra Rizzotti

          Wonderful! Do you know about the Miami South Beach Art Walk? Wondering if you're participating since I feel like you guys would be perfect for it: Member Juan Friere posted that - you guys should connect since you're both in Miami! He designs sustainable shoes and he's trying to get his project off the ground, just like you.

            Will connect with Brett and check civic crowdfunding platform, looks like a great project.
            Wynwood is a great neighborhood with loads of creativity and a great vibe, its art walk is much better than the one in South Beach, but I'll be checking it for the first time.

              Awesome! Glad you guys can connect. Juan- it seems like you'd love @thelabmiami. I see someone like you innovating with other creatives over there.

                  Hello Juan,

                  Would be great to have you come by The LAB. Let's definitely connect!
