Wonderful Miami ! 20. Juni 2008
Von JML - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This beautiful cocktail table book chronicles the storied architectural history of the Magic City. It features wonderful archival photos of the Miami in the early 20th century when "Spanish" style reigned, a history of the brilliant Art Deco era in South Beach, and glossy depictions of ultra-contemporary structures built in the 21st century by some of America's most renowned architects. Dunlop's prose is both lively and informative, consonant with the power and scope of the book's photographic history. Miami's architecture "at once lulls and stimulates residents and visitors alike," says A.M. Stern, in the book's thought-provoking introduction.

Miami: Mediterranean Splendor and Deco Dreams is complete history 4. Juli 2013

I was offered to keep the book and get a 50% refund because when the book arrived it was used, not new, and the spine was separated from the pages. This book is huge and weighs like 5 lbs. I did enjoy the hundreds of pictures that show the evolution of architecture in Miami. You could easily see that the 1920s through 1950s was the height of architecture there. In the 1960s and 70s the buildings were lifeless and bland. In the 80s architects of Latino descent hit the scene and their offerings looked like welfare projects from a third world country - horrible. Today, buildings have climaxed again with very modern structures. The book shows period commercial structures as well as private homes with the politics behind the construction so it is a very unique and worthy book, worthy of 5 stars. I only gave 3 because of the condition of the book I received.
