Art Deco Tips (14)

Miami and it wonderful Art Deco

We were dying to see this decorative and architectural style 1925-1940, with it's geometric designs and bold colors with regard to the buildings.

And it was fantastic. Miami Beach was the place we thought we would best see this, and it was great. Everywhere looked clean and tidy, and like a picture.

There were flash cars and beautiful people (mostly :)), and it felt classy too. I would loved to have stayed here for longer than we did, but I was so happy to be stood there enjoying the beautiful place.

Art Deco district

We weren't able to do an organized Art Deco tour with _______ so I printed out a self guided tour from National Geographic. Oddly, the buildings that I thought were coolest from the outside weren't listed but they did have some fun facts. You could walk through some of the hotels, others they stopped you by the pool. Ocean Drive was blocked off to car traffic this particular weekend because of the Orange Bowl crowds, the area was teeming with people wearing green and red, Notre Dame and Alabama fans. I imagine it's not as rowdy every weekend although I'm sure there are plenty of people

Art Deco Bonanza

South Beach is, perhaps, the pinnacle of hedonism. While other parts of the sunshine state specialize in ecotourism or family-friendly vacations, South Beach prides itself on an atmosphere of fun and reckless abandon that both exhilarates and makes you feel ashamed (mainly about the fact that you are nowhere near as beautiful as the regulars). The Art Deco district is a spectacular strip of hotels and stores that have been lovingly preserved to showcase a wonderful piece of American architectural history. The fact that Armani Exchange, Sephora and other mid- to upper-range retailers now occupy these buildings detracts a bit from their architectural beauty, but the fact that a number of the sites are still hotels and bars helps to preserve the character of the area. In particular, it is hard not to feel the aura of South Beach as you pass the crowd at Chesterfields, sipping their drinks and making comments about passers-by in intentionally loud stage whispers. The hotels and restaurants along the beachfront are equally pleasing. The history of the area is fascinating: the Art Deco movement took off in South Beach in the 1930s thanks to the destruction caused by a hurricane in 1926. It was taken over by the Air Force during WWII and afterwards became a centre for retirees, soon followed by drug dealers and a criminal element. South Beach's current status of jetset playground is thanks in large part to conservationists and architectural enthusiasts who sought to protect the Art Deco buildings in the late 1980s.

art deco district

The art deco district is located in South Beach and it is an area which has over 800 art-deco buildings from the 1930s and 40s, which have been restored and are now protected. You’ll recognize them by their pastel-colours which are in contrast with their architecture.

The buildings are painted in a gentle way but their structure is rigid and cubistic-like in their geometry – reminding you of machines and motions. Look at the decorations, because they are peculiar, too: nautical motifs, neon lines, terrazzo floors.

One of the best examples is the 1937 post office at 1300 Washington Avenue, which is a roundish building complete with murals and a fountain

Miami South Beach Art Deco District

When at the Miami Beach Southern end of the the 10-miles-long barrier island you'll be in the Art Deco National Historic District, the only location in the United States to be so designated. A few dozen hotels and apartment buildings got built in the 1930's here.

We know the "come's and goes", the "do's and don'ts". That is Miami South Beach Art Deco District. Super-truper in the mid-thirties and- sixties, gone with the wind some later, for now Art Deco has resurrected in "retro" cafes, restaurants and bookstores. Art Deco became Tropical Deco and who knows the pastel will achieve a sense of sophistication for the era.

The Art Deco-district at Miami Beach. The colourful pastelteint buildings make the beachfront even more nice and a walk will bring you along various architectural beauties of this style, like the SurfComber and the Backside of the Hilton hotel.

Art Deco District of Miami South Beach
Nearly 20-blocks area is one of the best reminiscence in the world of the Art Deco decade in 1920-30's. In many parts of the area you are fully surrounded by the streamlined pastel-colored buildings with fine details of arches, layers, interlaced elements and round shapes.
