Deco Delights: Preserving Miami Beach Architecture Reviews
What started as a vision of a preservationist troop, who saw beauty and opportunity in the tired ocean front Art Deco hotels, has blossomed into one of the premier Florida attractions and nightspots (its second to Orlando).
This is the quintessential book to own regarding South Beach Art Deco architecture. It's full or archival photos of the historic deco district and shows how the buildings create a unique neighborhood that we know as South Beach. I have actually purchased this book twice, once years ago in the early 1990s when I first moved to South Beach as a young man and now years later as a new owner of a small condo in the historic Deco district. The photos bring back great memories, and they place the current changes in South Beach within a certain design ethos that I think city leaders are still grappling. It's a beautiful book to have on a coffee table, especially your South Beach residence coffee table!
ah.....Art Deco....(nothing better). Love Babs Captiman and Lenny Horowitz. They saved the Miami Beach art deco scene.
Colorful and informative book.
