In a statement, George Lindemann, President of The Bass Board of Directors, explains that the new building meets the needs of The Bass’ goals: “More than just a building renovation, The Bass’ transformation brings the physical museum to the level of its curatorial ambition.
After a year of construction delays, the Bass is set to reopen October 8 with a major retrospective of artist Ugo Rondinone. Miami Beach’s only major art institution temporarily shuttered in 2016 for a major renovation that would almost double its programmable space without altering the historic building’s footprint.
Though he’s classically trained and certainly appreciates traditional technique, Frank de Biasi never stops searching for what’s next. The New York–based designer, who cut his teeth working for Peter Marino before breaking out on his own, has conceived interiors ranging from a classically appointed boathouse to an art-filled, kaleidoscopically patterned Miami manse.
Standing in the soft glow of his perfectly pastel two-story waterfront home in Florida, George Lindemann says, “I didn’t want a white house. I have two young girls whose favorite color is pink, and because they live with two dads and two brothers, I am always looking for ways to empower them. So I made pink my favorite color, too!”
