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.

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 !

The secrets of Lincoln Road

What you did not know about Lincoln Road

Lincoln Road is a bit of an epitome of what's on South Beach - good restaurants, decks, shops and neon lights! But let's dive down the street that attracts locals and tourists from around the world.

A street in perpetual transformation

Originally, Lincoln Road was just a mangrove forest, as was the entire island of Miami Beach. It was Carl Fisher, Miami's pioneer, who began drying up this area for what would become Lincoln Road, immediately a central street in the city. Carl Fisher himself had established a real estate agency on this street, among other major brands of the time such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Cadillac or Packard.

In the 1950's, the famous Miami Beach architect Morris Lapidus was chosen to redesign Lincoln Road. He added gardens, fountains and an amphitheater in the style "MiMo" (Miami Modern Architecture) that made the reputation of Morris Lapidus. It was closed to traffic, making it one of the first pedestrian shopping streets in the country.

The city of Miami Beach has always made it a point of honor to ensure that the historic appeal of Miami Beach does not disappear. In 2006, the city signs to close traffic west of Lincoln Road, extending the pedestrian street to Alton Road. In 2010, the city hires renowned landscaper Raymond Jungle to create an urban oasis to Alton Road.

In 2015, the Lincoln Road Business Improvement District signed for a major renovation of the street and adjoining streets. James Corner, Field Operations, the company behind Heighline in New York City, was responsible for improving pedestrian access by widening sidewalks, adding public seating and creating outdoor spaces for the installation of works of art or for live performances.

Projects abound on Lincoln Road, which seems to be attracting more and more stores, restaurants and residences over the years and renovations.  

This year again, some elements will be restored, including adding greenery and more lighting. A food hall named "The Lincoln Eatery" is also expected soon.

The 5th most expensive street in the United States

With rent averaging $300 a year and SqFt in 2017, Lincoln Road is the most expensive street in Florida to establish a store, but it also ranks 5th across America after 5th Avenue in New York. York, Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, Union Square in San Francisco and North Michigan Avenue in Chicago.

However, according to a report published by Cushman & Wakefield, rents decreased between 2016 and 2017, from $325 to $300, while rents for the 4 winners all stagnated or increased.

 

Thus, it seems that Lincoln Road still has some beautiful years to come, and even today, local and tourists flock there to discover the street shows, go shopping or have a drink.
