  While the original 6 life guard stands had been designed as a set of different building types (a round space age type, a pagoda looking type, etc), made mostly for shade and accommodated a single lifeguard, the new ones would need to accommodate two people and be secure.     A cubic cab prototype was designed to be a base structure for this purpose. Around this prototype, 6 visual ‘character’ types, each expressing different types of persona that one might find walking around SoBe. These ‘characters’ could be seen as actors in a play or opera, interacting with each other and with the changing occupants of the beach in a local drama. The stands would be placed along Miami beach all the way up to 86th st. to reinforce the South Beach brand.
