YOU ARE INVITED TO FRIDAY NIGHT’S OPEN HOUSE AT AIA’S MCAD BUILDING
SOA students and faculty are invited to go by MetroRail to a private open house and art exhibit in AIA’s new Miami Center for Architecture & Design (MCAD) in Downtown Miami. Once a three-story U.S. Post Office in the year 1914, it has now been completely restored and remodeled by Shulman + Associates (SOA Professor Allan Shulman). It is the home of AIA Miami as well as the Visitors’ Center, in partnership with the Miami Downtown Development Authority. It houses flexible exhibit space and will accommodate lectures, seminars and meetings. During your visit, you will enjoy light refreshments as you tour the rooms and see the Drawn from Miami art exhibit which explores our city through the hands of architects, urban designers, and landscape architects. The exhibit pieces are from a variety of sources, including museum archives, private collectors, the personal collections of individual architects, and academic institutions such as ours.
Friday, January 24, (100 N.E. 1st Avenue), 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
