Concrete Paradise: The history of Miami’s Marine Stadium.

Hilario Candela at the Miami Marine Stadium, 1963

It’s not everyday you get to write an architecture story that brings together Mies Van Der Rohe and Jimmy Buffett. Thankfully, god gave us the Miami Marine Stadium, one of Florida’s modernist masterpieces, designed by Cuban-born architect Hilario Candela in 1963. (That’s him above, posing before the stadium as it was under construction.)

This is a place with a fascinating history (one that is now chronicled at the Coral Gables Museum). Get the full scoop in ARCHITECT Magazine.

    Hi Carolina,
    I’m a London-based travel editor commissioning city guides for a new travel website for a blue-chip client.
    It’s still in development but I’m currently sounding out writers and wondered if you would be interested in covering Miami.
    I can give you more info over email if that’s of interest.
    Thanks and very best
