South Beach, Florida is said to have one of the largest collections of Art Deco architecture in the world. Walking along its streets is a journey back in time to an important architectural movement. Many art decos have been lovingly restored and preserved.
The architects and designers who built South Beach created a unique design style, now often referred to as Tropical Deco. Using pastel colors and streamlined curves, they used nautical, tropical, and ocean liner motifs to create a dazzlingly seaside resort set against the Atlantic’s turquoise shoreline.
