There is a lot I like about this apartment block in Miami South Beach.
Firstly, the chequerboard pattern above the second storey window and down through the small vertical windows to the concrete planter at ground level.
Next to the main windows an incredible number of horizontal lines, I'm not sure of they are speeding or not but they certainly exceed the rule of three.
Those window don't actually cut into the corner of the building as there is a supporting column there but the deep eyebrow providing shade creates the illusion that the window is set back into the building.
Lastly the corner furthest from our view behind the palm tree is curves and at the roofline there is three small portholes.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
