Clevelander Hotel

Albert Anis
1938
1020 Ocean Drive





This medium sized (5 story) hotel has the characteristic tripartite facade, here with a highly decorated central bay topped with a mini-ziggurat with dual-colored fluting. Vertical fluting on the sides is bifurcated by windows but still emphasizes the height and verticality of the structure. The eyebrows are not continuous in the front as they are in many Miami Art Deco buildings but on the sides they operate as string courses dividing the registers and emphasizing a horizontal movement.
