History of Miami Beach Part II: The Birth of Art Deco Architecture

By
Real Estate Agent with Josh Stein Realtor SFL#3057661

 

 

Miami Beach is much more than a tropical paradise and a popular tourist destination, it is rich with history, culture, and some of the most amazing and unique architecture in the world. In the mid-1930s, the Art Deco district of Miami Beach was developed. Art Deco is the most prevalent and recognizable style of architecture in Miami Beach. Art Deco is an eclectic artistic and design style that began in Paris in the 1920s and flourished internationally throughout the 1930s, into the World War II era. The Miami Beach Art Deco District contains the largest concentration of Art Deco resort architecture in the world, with some thirty blocks of vibrantly colored hotels and apartment houses dating from the 1920s to the 1940s. These buildings represent an era when Miami was heavily promoted and developed as a “tropical playground.”

Art Deco continues to be a popular style among buyers coming to the South Beach market. I have sold more art deco properties than I can count and I enjoy discovering the unique attributes to each Art Deco properties, no two being the same.

I have to admit that I have been just about every where in Fla. with the exception of Miami. It seemed to me there was alot of turmoil going on the last time i was close so we stayed away. How is it as a holiday destination? the Art Deco pictures look stunning and seems to paint a different picture of what I recall reading. thanks for the post.
