Standing nearly 200 feet in height, each of the four columns fades up and down as if the light is a breath, appearing and disappearing in subtly varying rhythms. The scale of the columns and the oscillating light allows this effect to be visible at great distances through the city, acting as a beacon drawing fans to the ballpark and announcing events occurring within.

The Marlins are committed to promoting a sustainable environment and have implemented many green initiatives into the design and operation of Marlins Park.
Sports Lighting: The Green Generation Lighting® developed by Musco will enhance the playing of America's favorite pastime while cutting energy costs and minimally impacting the environment. All lamps were aimed digitally within 0.15 degree of accuracy, maximizing the quantity and quality of the lighting while satisfying today's high definition broadcasting needs.
Energy Efficient Design: Marlins Park has implemented energy efficient design strategies that help to reduce our energy usage by more than 20% over the current Florida Building Code requirements.
Cool Roof: While the roof of Marlins Park looks cool, it is also considered a Cool Roof. The white reflective roofing material installed at Marlins Park was selected to minimize heat gain within the facility, lowering the demand for air conditioning.
Recycling: Working alongside Waste Management, the Marlins have implemented a comprehensive recycling program throughout Marlins Park. Recycling containers are located throughout Marlins Park concourses as well as the West and East Plazas for the convenience of our Guests and to allow everyone to be responsible stewards of our environment. To enhance our recycling program, our food concessionaire, Levy Restaurants, Inc. has selected concession packaging and cutlery that are recyclable or composed of recycled materials.
Reduced Water Usage: Marlins Park's low flow water closets, restroom faucets, showerheads and waterless urinals projected to reduce our overall water use for the facility by approximately 50%.
Regional Materials: More than half of the total materials used in the construction of Marlins Park were sourced, manufactured, or fabricated from within 500 miles of the ballpark site, thus limiting the overall carbon footprint of the project.

The left field operable wall is a feature unlike any other in Major League Baseball. Six (6) glass wall panels towering at 60 feet tall by 40 feet wide open to create a 240 feet view overlooking downtown Miami's spectacular skyline. Depending on weather conditions, the Operable Wall may open in conjunction with the Operable Roof or remain open when the roof is closed.
This commemorative artwork recalls the enormous MIAMI ORANGE BOWL sign from the stadium that stood on this site from 1937 until its demolition in 2008. The letters from the sign are reconstructed at their original ten-foot height and scattered throughout the east plaza of the Marlins Ballpark. Their positions capture an ambiguous moment between destruction and rebuilding: some letters stand vertically, others submerge themselves in the ground, and others lay horizontally as if at rest. As visitors move through the plaza, they create new alignments between the letters, spelling out different words as they glimpse the new stadium through fragments of the old. The sculpture display was created by Daniel Arsham as part of the Arts in Public Places Project of Miami-Dade County.

The optical paving designs for the West Plaza are the vision of Venezuelan kinetic and op artist Carlos Cruz-Diez. Internationally recognized for his work in color investigations, light installations, street interventions and architectural integrations, this monumental plaza marks the largest, site specific public artwork created by the artist. Constantly changing according to the intensity of light and the distance between the work and the spectator, the design of the paving system is a tribute to Cruz-Diez' life long experiments in color theory, science and kinetics. Entitled Chromatic Induction in a Double Frequency, the paving designs are described by artist as "Chromatic Events in continuous transformation, which alter as pedestrians walk by and as the conditions of sunlight or artificial light vary."
