Tudor Hotel, Miami Beach's Art Deco District (L. Murray Dixon, 1939)

Tudor Hotel, L. Murray Dixon, 1939

A writer Barbara Capitman is credited to save South Beach from buldozers in the 70's. Where others saw eyesore in the delapidated buildings, she saw a real treasure. Most of the buildings were in the Art Deco style and dated to the 1930s and 40s. Leonard Horowitz, an industrial designer, seized on the idea of resurrecting the buildings with the genial use of pastel colours. Decaying, old hotels were restored and made to look better than ever. In 1979, as a result of the efforts of Barbara Capitman, the Miami Design Preservation League, Miami Beach's Art Deco District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. This hotel emphasizes its corner site by the pink decorative stone, the angled entrance, the signage, and the needle-like spire.
