Chandler Building, Miami

Chandler Building, MiamiMiami South Beach is famous for the deco hotels along Ocean Drive but there are lots of other deco buildings it seems there is almost one on every corner.

The Chandler Building is a large commercial building which curves around its prominent corner location. The parapet is slightly taller on the corner section then takes a single step down along the side.

A band of stylised deco motifs sits just below the roofline but the most interesting feature to me is the red and black bands of tiles interspersed with naive shields.
