America’s new architecture capital? 14 of Miami’s most awe-inspiring buildings

CNN  — 

Miami architecture is not all one big Art Deco echo. Though the tropical idyll is synonymous with pastel-colored hotels on South Beach, and sprawling palm-lined manses on the city’s famed private islands, these days, the cityscape is as diverse as its residents.

Rarely a month goes by without an announcement of a new Herzog & de Meuron being built for future generations, or a new starchitect-led development promising to put the city firmly on the cultural map.

No one building defines Miami, but rest assured: this boom city, where things happen fast, is rapidly becoming the architecture capital of America.
