Sad to say, many of the Art Deco and mid-century modern structures that characterized easy living in South Florida for so long are slowly being demolished.

Miami's South Beach stands as an heroic and historic reclamation.

Here are two local Fort Lauderdale structures.

Sad loss of valuable Art Deco houses
by: Lesley at Decolish

Its such a pity that so many wonderful Art Deco houses are being lost. We are all going to regret it in the future I am sure.

The pictures you have posted are excellent examples of that tropical Art Deco style with the pastel shades, and the palm tree lattice work. I love the angular shapes and the industrial metal windows. They look cool for the hot climate and very liveable. I hope that these survive and are treasured for many years to come.
