Art Deco in Miami Beach

Richard and I enjoyed our week in Florida. Before visiting Orlando we spent a couple of days in Miami, where he had business. I was really impressed by it, and loved Miami Beach. The Art Deco district has 800 buildings in Art Deco style. Built in the 1930s and 40s ,they were originally plain white, however in the 1980s, designer Leonard Horowitz created the "Deco dazzle" by painting them in a rainbow of bright colours.
