Coral Gables wants a new Umbrella Sky. We have the most Miami ideas ever

Last summer most of Miami raced to Giralda Plaza to boost their Instagram profiles via selfies taken under the Umbrella Sky. Now, the city is looking for creative minds to come up with the next Big Thing.

Inspired by the amazing Cafetera Sky at Brickell’s Latin Cafe, we have channeled our artistic vibes and poor Photoshop skills into what we (though possibly not you) believe is a vortex of genius.
