Bay Harbor East Island, FL

There's no better place than Bay Harbor's East Island to see Miami's iconic mid-century Miami Modern (MiMo) style architecture. The style represent's Miami's subtropical, lively response to the stark, minimalist styles that came out of World War II—think curved walls, acute angles and bright colors. East Island is home to a large number of MiMo buildings, and several were designed by famous architects including Morris Lapidus, Henry Hohauser and Charles McKirahan. Today, large-scale construction and redevelopment threatens the iconic buildings.
