Spotlight on Glavovic Studio

724 NE 3 Avenue

The Margi Glavovic Nothard Studio and Glavovic Studio presents Flow, a dynamic exhibition and installation during Art Fallout 2015.

Inspired by the shifts, movement and life in the New River of Broward County, Flow is a large-scale public art project that connects the river and the community to the new Broward County Courthouse, embracing the public access Breezeway below the parking structure and the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The New River uniquely runs from the Everglades to the Atlantic Ocean, entirely within Broward County, Florida. This vernacular feature, equal in width to the Breezeway FLOW occupies, provides inspiring tangible elements translated into textures and patterns applied to forms that modulate to accommodate seating, walkways and activated areas.

The project’s vitality travels the floor and wall surfaces creating a dynamic envelope inviting the public to experience FLOW. In addition to form and color, lighting activates the space as an integral part of the experience. Broad views making connections beyond the space, integrate the larger context of the Courthouse, the City and the Community. This project provides the community an urban hub in which everyone pauses, reconnects and re-exchanges with the environment and each other.

Founded in 1999, Glavovic Studio Inc. is an award-winning Architecture and Design Studio located in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Glavovic Studio explores and produces contemporary architecture, art and urban design, focusing on exceptional creative processes and client oriented services that engage the environment and provide social value.

Margi Nothard is the Design Director of Glavovic Studio. Through drawings, photographs, large scale installations, architecture and urban design Margi prompts her audience to slow down and experience the place they are in and experiencing with each of her designs and visual art projects.

Local projects from Nothard and Glavovic Studio include the renovation design of Girls' Club, the NSU Bridge Stair / Art Plaza_Threshold at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale, ArtsPark at Young Circle in Hollywood, Young at Art Museum/Broward County Library with AECOM in Davie and the recently completed affordable housing project Kennedy Homes on Broward Blvd between 9th and 11th Avenues.

Limited street parking available.
