Miami Cruise Terminal A for Royal Caribbean

The state-of-the-art cruise terminal for Royal Caribbean, located in Miami, FL, was designed to resemble a futuristic cruise ship, with many different sides to the building’s end walls and roof that resulted in challenging geometry. Cruciform columns support the massive exterior, and it was designed without vertical bracing in order to support an open interior environment. This meant that lateral loads had to be transferred with fully welded and bolted moment connections.
