The colors of Miami Beach

Extending along the Bay of Biscayne, the peninsula of Miami Beach is a piece of heaven not far from the mainland.

South Beach, the Mecca of the Art Deco style, boasts a vibrant lifestyle where models and celebrities come together making Miami Beach an attractive destination with a particularly attractive climate throughout the year.

Art and the sun

Extended on Ocean Drive and Washington avenue, the elegant district Art Deco is a must and is the delight of lovers of the charm of the 30s. After a fire in 1926, the neighborhood flourished quickly. Saved from the demolition in 1976 thanks to Barbara Capitman, founder of Miami Design Preservation Leagueit is now one of the oldest historic districts in Miami. The Winterhaven Hotel, the Hotel Colony, the Post office, the Carlyle or The Leslie Hotels, are the emblems of the Art Deco style of Miami.

In a radiant climate, South Beach is full of iconic cultural venues and events such as Art Basel. Famous twin sister of the fair Basel, Art Basel is one of the major events of the international calendar of the world of Art. Seeing the day in Miami Beach in December 2002, Art Basel has since become the most important contemporary art show in North America. The 16thedition of 2018 counted 290 galleries from 33 countries and presenting more than 4,000 artists. Boers-Li Gallery, David Castillo Gallery, Tanya Leighton and so many other galleries were present. 

The Faena Arts District located on Collins Avenue, was designed by the Argentine developer Alan Faena and symbolizes the art of living and the arts. The centerpiece of this cultural and artistic destination is the Faena Forum, designed by Rem Koolhaas / OMA, presenting innovative creations in the fields of art and entertainment as well as technology. The NWS is erected in 2011 and also symbolizes the artistic soul of Miami Beach (the only orchestral academy in the United States). Conducted by conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, this institution trains talented young musicians in a brilliant musical career. The troupe has also performed on the most beautiful scenes in the world, ranging from New York Carnegie Hall to the Barbian Center in London through the Concertgebouw Amsterdam.

Day and night: beaches and parties

Of North Shore Open Space Park at South Pointe Park, extends a long beach of white sand, where tourists come to recharge their batteries every day. If South Beach is the best known and the most festive, Cape Florida State Park at Key Biscayne is more wild and authentic, the beach of Haulover Park is quieter and offers a certain tranquility. 

Walkers can also get lost in the Miami Beach Botanical Garden to find a little freshness, before pacing Lincoln Road, a place of open-air shopping where creative boutiques and famous brands make the happiness of its visitors.  

At dusk, cafes and colorful restaurants like Joe's Stone Crab, an institution since 1913, and Smith & Wollensky, one of the most beautiful views of Miami, are must-see places to spend a pleasant evening. And naturally, you can not eat Miami without its famous "nightlife" in colorful restaurants such as Baoli or Trifle and nightclubs like LIVMokaï or Wall

Art Deco in Miami Beach

All about Art Deco

Art Deco is omnipresent at Miami Beach. It is found on every street corner, with its pastel colors, geometric curves mixed with straight lines, portholes, chrome rails and glass blocks. This is even what makes all the charm of the neighborhood, creating this atmosphere of postcard.

The origins of Art Deco

Born in the 1910s, Art Déco is the first artistic movement to have had an international scope in architecture and decoration. It takes its name from theInternational Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts which took place in Paris in 1925. 

Downtown Miami.

He imposed himself after the war in opposition to Art Nouveau and his spirit of freedom, imposing a return to symmetry and geographical forms, with however a certain creativity in the use of colors. It is found throughout Europe, North America, North Africa, but also in Asia, in cities such as Shanghai or Hong Kong.

However, each region has adapted and the differences between the French Art Deco that can be found in Paris and the one found in Miami are very different.

Miami Art Deco District

Art Deco in Miami

AT South Beach, it is the whole neighborhood that was built according to the precepts of the Art Deco movement, with its own adaptation of the movement where we always find these geometric shapes. After a fire that devastated the entire neighborhood in 1926, the entire neighborhood is rebuilding and becomes the playground of architects who let their imagination play. The fact that the whole neighborhood was built during the same period explains the architectural unity that we find there. At the time however, white was omnipresent and colors very rare, and since the 1960s, the inhabitants of this style of another era and demolition projects are increasing. However, a movement of protection is formed and leads to the Miami Preservation League, created in 1976, which launches large renovation projects. This is the beginning of the pastel colors so characteristic of the neighborhood and which are the signature of the "Tropical Art Deco".

The city rediscovers its heritage and makes its business card, popularized by the television series "Miami Vice".

The Miami Art Deco District, which gained the status of a US historic district in 1979, extends from 5th Street to Dade Boulevard and includes 960 historic listed buildings, making it the most important Art Deco District. in the world !
