Sunny Isles Beach, Paradise Lost: A Postcard History

TAGS: History
Sun 07/10/2022

Join expert tour guide and Treasurer of the Miami Design Preservation League Joel Levine as he reconstructs the fascinating history of Sunny Isles Beach. Using vibrant postcards, price lists, and other precious archival material and videos, Levine will time travel from the original 1920 purchase of the town by Harvey Baker Graves to the post-WWII period of glamorous resorts and motels and into the present day.

In connection with the current exhibition Giller on Giller: An Adventure in Architecture, Levine will also identify the special contribution of legendary architect Norman Giller, who designed more than 70 percent of the luxurious Miami Modern hotels that dotted the Sunny Isles Beach waterfront in the 1950s and 1960s.
