This lecture is part of MDPL's Spring 2018 lecture series: «Made in Miami»

The history of Sunny Isles Beach will be reconstructed from its origins as a mangrove, to the whimsical architecture of the 1950s, up to the present era of high-rise condominiums and hotels. Using postcards, price lists, movie clips, contemporary photos and other archival materials, this virtual tour moves north from Bakers Haulover, stopping to admire Miami Modern structures and their contemporary replacements, with an occasional historical digression to look at factors that affected the city’s development, including the impact of changing transportation technologies, and anti-semitism. The iconic Castaways Motel will be highlighted along with its Art Deco-inspired replacement, the Oceania Condo. Join us on a journey through time and space in an ever-changing Miami city.

Joel Levine is a Tour Guide and Board Member of the Miami Design Preservation League. For over 30 years he collected and restored radios and wind-up phonographs manufactured from 1900 to 1960, eventually acquiring more than 600 items. While his original interest was in the technical design, Joel’s interests evolved to appreciate the Art Deco and Mid Century Modern cases and cabinets. This presentation is a result of Joel’s interest in both history and design.
