This week's news that the AIA is relocating to the historic post office building in Downtown Miami serves as a good reminder that the Magic City is only about 116 years old. The "historic" label carries a much different meaning in these parts. Still, we may be guilty of not having preserved enough of our architectural gems.

"Let's face it - Knicks fans will be staying and dining in Downtown Miami and Brickell Avenue hotels and restaurants, and partying at our bars and clubs," said Tadd Schwartz, publicist for the Downtown Development Authority.
Traffic mayhem! A sudden uptick in neon bracelet sales! A disproportionate number of Dutch speakers overheard at Starbucks! It can only mean one thing: the Dade County Youth Fair has arrived. Not so fast.

Kudos to the City of Miami and some forward-thinking residents and stakeholders for converting a pedestrian-unfriendly median/parking lot in downtown Miami into a temporary park (read the Miami Herald's coverage of the park here). Don't blink or you'll miss it; the park will only be intact for five days (thru Sunday). But its very existence is sparking some very healthy discourse about how we use public spaces and how we can further evolve Miami into a more livable, walkable, sustainable city.

Back in 1987, Gordon Gekko enlightened us all when he declared that “money never sleeps” in the film Wall Street. Fast forward to 2011 and we are faced with a very different set of ground rules for the so-called ’smart money.’
