Presented by the Coral Gables Museum and curated by renowned architecture critic, Beth Dunlop with large scale photographs by Robin Hill, Marking the Millenium is a major exhibition focusing on buildings that have been built in Greater Miami since the turn of the century. The photo above features the oculus atop the light tube that splices Miami's Wilkie D. Ferguson Federal Courthouse in two. Designed by Arquitectonica, this remarkable building features two towers: one side representing the defense and the other side the prosecution, with the light tube serving as a dramatic intervention for the light of justice.  
Also featured in the exhibition are several large scale photos of Herzog & De Meuron's brand new Perez Art Museum Miami. Jedd Novatt's superb CHAOS SAS serves as center point for the Museum's arrival circle.

The second of three exhibitions in March is the sale of the entire collection of my photos from the Going, Going, Gone? exhibition originally held at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale in 2005. That exhibition was an attempt to highlight the urgent need for preservation of Broward County's fast vanishing mid-century modern architecture. The Broward Trust for Historic Preservation will be exhibiting all the photographs at The AQUA Hotel to help raise funds to continue their mission.

I recently photographed AIA Miami's new Miami Center for Architecture & Design designed by Shulman + Associates. You can see coverage in the architect's newspaper 

If you want to get something done, give it to a busy person!
