The competition was launched last month in Tallahassee on the steps of the Historic Old Capitol ( a top 100 building) to feature the beauty and wonder of Florida’s architecture. The buildings were nominated by AIA Florida’s local chapters, which submitted standout buildings in their regions to a panel of acclaimed architects, who then narrowed the list to the top 100 buildings.

“In 2008, Jeffrey and the Soffer family re-opened the Fontainebleau Miami Beach after a billion dollar renovation which sought to uncover Morris Lapidus’ original vision, and mark a rebirth of an enduring architectural landmark in Miami Beach,” said Phil Goldfarb, President and Chief Operating Officer of Fontainebleau Miami Beach. “This award is a testament to the magnificent restoration of Lapidus’ work and the international team of architects assembled to accomplish that task. We are honored and want to thank the millions who voted to help us achieve this top placement.
