AIA Florida Reveals Winner of the
Top 100 Buildings Competition
After more than 2.4 million votes cast in the "100 Years. 100 Places." competition, Fontainebleau Miami Beach came in number one in the state after garnering the most votes from the public. To commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the Florida Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida), the organization recently launched a Top 100 Buildings online competition.
The Florida Association of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Florida) is an association of architects with a mission to unite, educate and position architects to lead the shaping of Florida’s future. The members of AIA Florida are leaders in their communities and passionate about good design, the health, safety and welfare of others, and preserving architecture through sustainable practice. AIA Florida launches the “Florida Architecture: 100 Years. 100 Places.” competition as a part of its 100-year anniversary. Fontainebleau Miami Beach has been selected as one of the top 100 buildings in Florida and will be showcased in a statewide public survey designed to rank these top 100 buildings.
Today, Fontainebleau Miami Beach blurs the line between the glamour of the past, the luxury of the present, and a new vision for tomorrow. Emerging from the original vision of legendary Lapidus, whose daring designs epitomized a concept of setting a stage where everyone who enters will play their part, Fontainebleau combines striking design, contemporary art, music, fashion and technology into a vibrant new kind of immersive guest experience. Following a $1 billion renovation and expansion, Fontainebleau is a spectacular blend of Miami’s glamorous golden era– 1,504 rooms and suites, 20 oceanfront acres, 12 restaurants and nightclubs including three signature restaurants, a 40,000-square-foot spa, and a sophisticated poolscape with private cabanas.
