Who would guess that Miami would become cutting edge in urban development. This from a urban planner - what amazes me about Miami is how a small group of champions have created a unique architecture going back to the 70s/80s, revitalized South Beach Art Deco district, created MiMo with 50s Art Moderne, and now taken a derelict warehouse area and transformed it into living art in Wynwood. It will be interesting to see what happens in the Design District whose development started out very organically and now seems to be a sea of construction.
Going back to Wynwood - I was there first about 3 years ago and it was a few murals, old one and two story warehouses a scattering of restaurants and frankly a bit scary at night. Went back this past weekend and it was positively eye popping - frankly enjoyed the wall art so much more than what was in PAMM (Perez Art Museum). Could easily spend a few hours walking, munching, and just plain enjoying a unique urban venue.
I'd describe favorite walls, but they are constantly changing - being painted over (the dynamic is both a blessing and a curse - wish they'd figure out a way to somehow preserve/memorialize earlier works). The area is truly a living monument to Tony Goldman, who died recently. The fact that his family is furthering his legacy speaks to the future of Wynwood.
