    “Beautiful Decay” is an architectural exploration into the viability of current methods of habitation. Both real and speculative, the selected projects explore sceneries and scenarios that tackle the issues facing our ever-changing landscape. Featuring local and national architects and designers, the exhibition is curated by Germane Barnes, OLCDC Designer-in-Residence and Lecturer at the University of Miami School of Architecture.

    The exhibition will run from September 18 to October 18, 2015.

    “Beautiful Decay was inspired by the disillusionment one often experiences with ‪‎architecture‬. Whether professionally or in ‪‎academia‬, one often reaches a critical juncture when they attempt to find their place in the field. Architecture is routinely thought of as limitless and impactful and iconic and autonomous. A lucky few are able to realize those thoughts, the vast majority are not. Miami, a relatively young city, is currently facing that moment. While contemporary projects are beginning to appear across the city, Miami’s rich history is collateral damage.

    The goal of this exhibition is to bring attention to issues surrounding but not limited to South Florida. Sea level rise and flooding are no longer speculative topics, but real phenomenon that one physically and visually experiences during the summer months. Architecture in the tropical world is filled with endless, speculative possibilities that need to be explored.

    While Beautiful Decay is an attempt to give a ‪Voice to the voiceless, to express the work of locations that are often forgotten or ignored, it is not limited to Miami. ‪Proposals will display instances of global decadence and work that provoke insightful discussion on the world that we inhabit, both positively and negatively.”

    #ThankYouMiami for Fashion – Capretto Sparks Shoe Talks in Miami

    Thank-You-Miami-For-Fashion-For-Breakfast-Chelsea-Paris-Title

    As summer wraps up, the days of 24-hour bare feet are also coming to an end and the local fashion spotlight has turned to shoes. It all started last month when Teen Vogue‘s Fashion and Accessories director, Marina Larroudé, joined Chelsea Paris footwear designer and founder, Theresa Ebagua, in hosting Fashion for Breakfast at Cecconi’s Miami Beach (see photos below). Their discussion, which was moderated by Miami’s own Jason Salstein, Head Buyer for Capretto Shoes in South Miami, centered around Fall shoe trends including the two styles from the Chelsea Paris Fall 2015 collection exclusive to Capretto which were unveiled during an in-store event the following day.

    “Capretto is unlike any boutique in the country, if not the world,” says Jason. “As an accessory store, we have the ability to curate collections and custom shoes, be it a color, fabric, or heel height, differentiating ourselves from any other boutique.”

    This month, Jason continues his mission of bringing A-list designers to Miami and introducing them to the local market. On the agenda? Luxury shoe designer and owner of his eponymous label, Jerome Rousseau. Jerome will be at Capretto on Tuesday, September 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. previewing pieces from his Pre-Fall 2015 collection and signing any pairs purchased during the in-store event. On Wednesday, September 2, he will join Miami model, blogger, and “It” girl Jenny Lopez in hosting Fashion for Breakfast at Cecconi’s Miami Beach from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Their panel will be moderated by Haute Living Magazine Contributing Editor and RAC owner, Regina Arriola Cauff.

    We asked Jason how he lures top notch designers to our beautiful city and his response was on point. “Who wouldn’t want an excuse to come to Miami? It gives designers a chance to truly see the Miami market, which is not only a huge market in itself but also acts as a window to South America.” For the locals, these events present a unique opportunity to interact with designers of young brands and share with them our deepest, darkest shoe desires. Plus, the in-store events are the perfect pretense to admire (and shop) Capretto’s drool-worthy shoe inventory in person. See you there? RSVP to fashionforbreakfastmia [at] gmail [dot] com.

    Calendars Raise Awareness for Here’s Help, A Safe Haven for Newborns and Friends Forever Rescue and the Jackson Memorial Burn Center

    South Florida Firefighter hotties will be “Burning Up” for your love and community support at the 2016 edition unveiling of the South Florida Firefighters Calendar presented by One Beat CPR + AED. Ladies drink for free from 9pm to 3am, and Saturday, August 29th, 2015 at Murphy’s Law Irish Pub at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino at 10:00 PM. The Calendar raises awareness for Here’s Help, A Safe Haven for Newborns, Friends Forever Pet Rescue, and University of Miami Jackson Memorial Burn Center.

    For the past 24 years, the South Florida Firefighters Calendar has been one of America’s top firefighter calendars. But more importantly, it has raised thousands of dollars for many of South Florida’s charitable causes.

    As the calendar continues to grow, there are opportunities which require greater energy and effort. As a result, we are pleased to announce reunification with our presenting sponsor from prior years, One Beat CPR + AED, and a new operational plan effective August 26th, 2015. This new focus will allow the Calendar to achieve greater heights and have a bigger impact on our local communities.

    For over 15 years, One Beat CPR + AED has been a strong voice in raising awareness of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, CPR, and Public defibrillator programs in the tri-county area. They offer emergency resuscitative care certification training and are authorized by the American Heart Association (AHA) and American Safety Health Institute (ASHI).

    The South Florida Firefighters Calendar will continue to advocate and raise funds for the charities it’s been affiliated with; however, we are excited to announce we have added CPR and AED awareness to our core initiatives. We’d like to thank our sponsors, participants, fans, and volunteers for your faithful support and commitment over the years and we look forward to sharing the upcoming changes with you

    Introducing Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In’s “Blue Starlite By The Bay” at Kennedy Park in the Coconut Grove

    This September, Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-In is setting up its big screen at a new venue, and one with plenty of outdoor intrigue. Situated in the Coconut Grove area, the drive-in’s “Blue Starlite By The Bay” welcomes movie fans to enjoy films on Bayshore Drive in between Miami’s striking Kennedy and Peacock Parks, and for the very first time on the weekends. Blue’s new home is the perfect place for patrons to relax and get their outdoor film fix on while breathing in fresh, waterfront air and reveling in the natural beauty of the surrounding parks.

    “Blue Starlite By The Bay” is a collaboration made possible by The City of Miami Parks and Recreation with the help of the Commissioner of Miami, Marc Sarnoff. Blue’s new entertainment escape sits just a few blocks down from Scotty’s Landing and Monty’s Raw Bar and Restaurant—two of Miami’s most well known places for drinks and eats on the water. The car park at this location can host up to 30 vehicles a night, featuring a grassy area near the front of the screen for bikers and walk-in guests. Patrons who wish to secure their space early can do so and enjoy an outing in the park, time on the playground or a walk along the bay before settling into their cars for an evening of film screening fun.

    Throughout the first month of fall, Blue Starlite will screen a mix of romance and adventure-packed family films—such as Princess Bride, The Goonies, Grease (the sing along), Alice In Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz and Jaws. In the spirit of Blue Starlite’s cinematic experimentation, the Blue will offer alternative rock’n roll listening options for The Wizard of Oz and Alice In Wonderland with its popular late night Psychedelic Cinema Series. Film lovers can opt to enjoy Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon album with The Wizard of Oz or choose to listen to the The Wall soundtrack as they view Alice In Wonderland.

    As September comes to a close and Halloween season approaches, Blue Starlite will gear up for its biggest month of the year: October. Fans of the drive-in are encouraged to check the website for more details on upcoming events and screenings at www.miamiurbandrivein.com.

    The Miami Center for Architecture & Design (MCAD) is proud to announce LISTEN TO THIS BUILDING, a collaborative project between MCAD and EXILE Books, a Miami-based, pop-up artist’s book store. LISTEN TO THIS BUILDING is a groundbreaking program that seeks to bridge the understanding between downtown Miami architecture, independent publishing, and accessibility, specifically addressing visual impairments. Opening September 3, 2015, the exhibition coincides with the 25th anniversary of Americans with Disabilities Act.

    LISTEN TO THIS BUILDING will transform ten Downtown Miami buildings into a living, multimedia tableau via four main components:

    The MCAD gallery will feature tactile relief works of selected downtown buildings with accompanying wall texts provided in braille.

    The public, front steps of the Miami Center for Architecture and Design (MCAD) will house the project’s central component: an outdoor audio piece that will share engaging stories about the Old U.S. Post Office and Courthouse (MCAD’s home) as well as surrounding downtown buildings. The audio installation will be accompanied by a large, vinyl, floor applique inviting passersby to “LISTEN” to the building.

    To further enhance the exhibit, students from FIU’s College of Architecture + the Arts (CARTA) at Miami Beach Urban Studios will create models of selected downtown buildings using a 3-D printing process. These renderings will be displayed in covered boxes obscuring their visual properties so that audiences must feel the building to experience the architecture.

    To commemorate the exhibition, EXILE Books will also produce an artist’s book in which the architectural narratives from the outdoor audio piece will be transcribed in braille. There will be no photographs or printed text in the publication, only tactile reliefs of each building, effectively compelling the viewer to experience Miami through new and distinct paradigms.

    The exhibition is believed to be the first architectural exhibit designed to address accessibility for persons with visual impairments. MCAD and EXILE Books will co-host a slate of weekly events during the six-week exhibition to engage the public on issues of art, architecture, and accessibility. The exhibition will be on view from September 3, 2015 to October 17, 2015.

    The exhibition, mobility tours, and braille artist book are made possible with the support of the Miami Downtown Development Authority. Support for EXILE Books is made possible through the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Printing and consulting for the project generously provided by Miami Lighthouse for the Blind. Tactile illustrations offered by John De Salvo and Judith McBrien as featured in the Norton’s Pocket Guide to Miami Architecture. Programming partners include Miami Lighthouse for the Blind, Ability Explosion, Florida International University’s College for Architecture + the Arts, and IlluminArts. Additional sponsorship provided by Thomas Printworks and SFCA isaw + Subtropics.
