The wait is finally over, and the results of Florida Architecture: 100 Years. 100 Places. are in! “We are elated that so many Floridians took the time to learn about the beautiful structures in their communities,” said Donald Yoshino, FAIA and Chairman of AIA Florida’s 100th Anniversary Committee. “We intend to keep the conversation front and center as we celebrate 100 years and encourage students across the state to consider a career in architecture — placing their own unique signature on our state’s skyline.”
It is worth noting as NPR did that 23 of the 100 places are in Miami-Dade.
