Pocket Guide to Miami Architecture, Paperback / softback Book

Pocket Guide to Miami Architecture Paperback / softback

Illustrated by John F. DeSalvo

Part of the Norton Pocket Guides series

Description

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 Gehry's twenty-first-century reinterpretation of the music hall.
