Shelborne Hotel

beachside fašade by T. Triplett Russell and Igor B. Polevitzy
1940
1801 Collins Avenue





This massive hotel is in stark contrast to the small, most often 3-story Art Deco hotels that inhabit South Beach. The fenestration, as well as the repetitive, unvaried facade, is typically modern--closer to International style. In Miami, they call this style MiMo (Miami Modern).
