The revitalization of Miami's South Beach Art Deco district is one of architecture and urban design's great success stories. A Modernist building boom now complements the existing Art Deco gems, and the Aqua development is the culmination of this transformation. The brainchild of developer Craig Robins, Aqua is the first New Urbanist community that features exclusively Modernist work-with a star roster of architects, such as Alison Spear, Hariri & Hariri, and Alexander Gorlin. Specifically commissioned artworks by renowned artists Richard Tuttle and Guillermo Kuitca add visual interest to the public spaces. Combining the best of neo-traditional urbanism with cutting-edge Modernist designs, Aqua provides a compelling model for the future of growing communities worldwide.
