Wednesday, January 26
6:00 PM to 8PM
at Miami Beach Botanical Garden
2000 Convention Center Drive

Free and open to the public.

Join authors Allan T. Shulman, Randall C. Robinson and James (Jeff) F. Donnelly for readings and discussion of Miami Architecture, the authoritative guidebook that provides a broad, accessible architectural overview of the notable buildings that can be found in the core of downtown Miami, Miami Beach, and Coconut Grove.

Published in 2010 (Univ. of Florida, $29.95), the book grew out of the Miami Architecture Project, a community-based, nonprofit association that organized more than a dozen local forums to develop deeper appreciation of architecture and the role of architecture in community revitalization.
