Building Marvelous Miami
An Architectural & Urban History
by Nicholas N. Patricios
This well-illustrated survey documents Miami's rich architectural heritage, from its origins as a Native American camp to its present incarnation as a vibrant international city. The book's first section outlines the history of greater Miami, including the noted communities of Miami Beach, Coconut Grove, and Coral Gables. The larger, second section provides an overview of Miami's diverse architectural styles and detailed descriptions of significant landmarks. While the addition of detailed maps indicating building locations would benefit readers unfamiliar with Miami, the author has done a fine job of capturing the exuberance of the city's architecture. Highly recommended for collections in American urban history and architecture.
