Landscape Legacy in South Florida

Miami and South Florida’s landscape legacy extends from its Spanish Colonial roots to the present, where strong Modernist, Beaux Arts and Mediterranean design concepts from Europe and the Eastern U.S. are expressed in unique gardens, parks, plazas, estates and streetscapes. Explore Miami's design legacy through tours that include entertaining anecdotes and intriguing stories about design history, landscape architecture and city shaping. Many are places people pass daily, but do we know their background stories?

What’s Out There Weekend dovetails with the Web-based What’s Out There, the nation’s most comprehensive searchable database of historic designed landscapes. The database currently features more than 1,400 sites, 9,000 images and 700 designer profiles.  And, What's Out There is newly optimized for iPhones and similar handheld devices, and includes a new feature - What's Nearby - a GPS-enabled function that locates all landscapes in the database within a 25-mile radius of any given location.
