Miami, FL

The Miami architectural industry boomed in the years following the Second World War. Known as the Modernist period or “MiMo” for short, this style was recognized around the world for its unique and innovative designs. MiMo architecture featured themes based on what Florida is known for; fun, relaxation and glamour. This trend was in great contrast to the styles of pre war Miami, which had been described by historians as efficient, stark and minimalist. For those who are interested in seeing classic examples of the MiMo period, a trip to Middle or Upper Miami Beach will be sure to satisfy admirers of this unique style of architecture.
