Art Deco Architecture
Miami is known for its famed Art Deco architecture, going back to the Miami Vice 1980s and the pink, black and turquoise of the South Beach scene. But another style has been gaining recognition in
recent years, a sleek but often overlooked version called Miami Modern,
or MiMo. It's the playful architecture of many of Miami's old motels
with flashing neon signs and polished terrazzo floors. The historic Art
Deco district is central to SoBe, while farther north, a few of the
classic Miami MiMo hotels dot the landscape.
