Iconic Miami - Atlantis (Architectonica 1980)




Images from:http://www.jmhdezhdez.com/2012/05/at...-brickell.html Website links to the video of the opening credits for the TV show "Miami Vice" which featured this building.

the illuminated original - now known as Miami Tower (IM Pei 1983) On of the worlds first illuminated skyscrapers - even before the Empire State NYC. Almost 30 years old and still using old school gel lighting. It's now obscured by newer, taller buildings; and overshadowed by many glitzier, computer controlled LED lit cousins around the world. But, IMHO it still remains one of the most simply beautiful.
selected images from: http://skyscraper.talkwhat.com/view/...sGlzRyaTk.html








2 classic Miami Buildings that pay homage to Seville's Giralda. Old world style redefined for a tropical new world.


Freedom Tower - Originally the Miami News Building one of our first skyscrapers and now a cultural landmark.

Only in Miami....a recent addition - 50 Biscayne

This is the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles. These buildings look far more impressive in person than they do in these pictures.

And this one is not just green but seriously Art Deco as well, built in the 1920's.

And here are the golden towers of Dallas. These were the very first glass towers I ever saw, from up close, about a day or two after moving to America as a kid. I was very impressed.
