screen-shot-2018-10-01-at-11-21-22-am

Today marks the first day of Architecture Month, also knows as ‘Archtober’ – a month-long celebration of architecture and design.

Once popularly known for its influential Art Deco movement, Miami has reinvented itself, while preserving characteristics from its past, to become a world-class architectural destination. Today, it’s not uncommon to hear of world-renowned architects selecting Miami as the location for their next project.

We have a deep appreciation for the architects in Miami that embody its unique styles and have put our city on the map. So, throughout the month of October we will be spotlighting our architecture clients and how they’ve impacted our local built environment.

Award-winning architecture firm, Choeff Levy Fischman, is well-known for its Tropical Modern home designs that have transformed Miami Beach’s most luxurious neighborhoods, including the Venetian Islands and North Bay Road. Architecture and design firm Stantec is responsible for some of Miami’s best residential and hospitality venues, which are all designed with the community in mind. An architect by trade, Robert Ayona is the co-founder of Bloommiami, a design and production firm specializing in the creation of retail pop-ups for luxury brands. Kean Office for Design + Architecture is a knowledge – and creativity – based practice with a focus and dedication to architecture and design, leading to highly distinctive environments, buildings, interiors and experiences.

FIU Celebrates City of Miami Beach’s 100th Anniversary

MBUSAs part of an expansive partnership with the city that began last year, FIU is hosting numerous events in conjunction with the 100th Anniversary of Miami Beach.

Though the celebration runs all year, the major centennial events will be held March 22-26, including a performance by the FIU Symphony and Concert Choir at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on March 25.

According to John Stuart, associate dean of cultural and community engagement in the College of Architecture + the Arts (CARTA) and executive director of the Miami Beach Urban Studios (MBUS), FIU has had a significant presence on Miami Beach for years ­­­­­– so partnering with the city was a natural fit.

Beyond the centennial events, projects included in FIU’s partnership with the city range from sea level rise and transportation to dual enrollment and new courses at MBUS.

Located in the iconic 420 Lincoln Road building, FIU’s MBUS has worked with city leaders for months to help plan FIU’s collaboration with the centennial. In addition to MBUS, the Wolfsonian-FIU and the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU will play a part in the festivities.

Oberhausen Marketing & PR (OBR) is not only a business of Miami Beach, but is also a vested party in the future of the community. South Beach local Josh Oberhausen, President of OBR and member of the Board of CARTA, is passionate about seeing these projects through to fruition.
