Coral Gables Museum exhibit depicts an architectural coming of age in Miami.
The Miami Herald's Andres Viglucci explores Marking the Millennium: 21st Century Miami Architecture, a new exhibit at the Coral Gables Museum, guest curated by critic and author, Beth Dunlop
The survey, augmented by a handful of architectural models, spotlights what Dunlop believes to be some of the most significant publicly accessible buildings — no condos, homes or offices — erected in Miami since 1999, when Arquitectonica’s AmericanAirlines Arena made its debut.
What it all underscores, Dunlop said, is what many increasingly believe: The young city is forging a distinctive architectural identity that markedly raises the design bar for new buildings.
Arranged thematically by building use, the lineup ends chronologically with Herzog & deMeuron’s new Pérez Art Museum Miami, which opened in December to near-universal praise.
