This guidebook organizes 100 architectural highlights into walkable tours in downtown Miami and Miami Beach. From the tropical vernacular of the Barnacle House to the Art Deco neighborhoods of Miami Beach, from the Midcentury Modernism of Morris Lapidus to the sophisticated rhythms of Arquitectonica, Judith Paine McBrien captures the vibrancy and diversity of architecture in Miami and its environs. Set in a stunning seaside site, the buildings of Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, and Coconut Grove tell a fascinating story of artifice, innovation, charm, and international influence. This masterfully illustrated guide highlights the buildings that visitors will want to see, among them the City Beautiful planning of Coral Gables; the classical glory of Vizcaya; and the New World Symphony, Frank Gehrys twenty-first-century reinterpretation of the music hall.
