Miami Modern Metropolis
Aaron Britt: Having been to Miami several times now, most recently for Design Miami and Art Basel Miami Beach just last month, I've grown increasingly fond of the place. Equal parts pleasure center, vibrant cultural whirlpool, and throbbing exercise in artifice, Miami is a city perpetually grasping at a history that in many ways, it simply does not have. Only 100 years ago it was largely swampland, and a nascent playground for the rich. As year-round residency increased, and the city embraced the swelling middle class of American vacationers, the boom of authentic Art Deco building eventually exploded into some of the US's most compelling mid-century modern design.
