Miami MuseumsWalk into a re-creation of Interama – Miami’s futuristic fair of the Americas from the 1960s. Under development for decades, Interama was never built, but captured the imagination of planners, architects and public officials during an era when Miami increasingly perceived itself as a hemispheric crossroads.

See for the first time Interama drawings by such world-renowned figures as architectural renderer Hugh Ferriss and architects Marcel Breuer and Louis Kahn. Visitors of all ages will enjoy a multi-sensory environment filled with video projections, computer interactives and hands-on activities related to design, social change and politics in post-World War II Miami and the Americas. Organized by the Historical Museum of Southern Florida and guest curated by Allan Shulman and Jean-François LeJeune, professors of architecture at the University of Miami.
