"I intend to work where history is being made. Miami and Havana, are both having transcendental changes," explained the artist Juan Garaizabal. "The idea is to materialize the physical connection that already exists and is rooted in Miami. A structure so symbolic such as the balconies of Havana is the perfect representation of nostalgia that this Caribbean city evokes in the majority of the Miami population."
Miami's most prominent personalities such as Jorge Perez, Ella Fontanals-Cisneros, through the CIFO foundation, The Bayfront Park Management Trust Miami, and Mana Contemporary, as well as the artist's foundation, Urban Memories, are involved in the support of the project.
