Faculty Member Ellen J. Uguccioni Produces New Book

August 30th, 2012 — This new book, A Source of Community Pride: The Architecture of Sunny Isles Beach is about an area of Miami Beach that few of us know – its history, its radical changes and its unfortunate deterioration that was inevitable with the economy of the 1970s. However, “the collective efforts of its citizens brought about the autonomy of Sunny Isles and its incorporation as a city in 1997. With that came a new vision, seeking an ideal location for tourists and owners alike to experience the pageantry of an ever-changing aquamarine ocean and infinite sky. The 15th anniversary Commemorative Edition of this book serves to illustrate a change that brought with it monumental buildings designed by some of the Miami area’s best architects who took every advantage of their ‘once in a lifetime’ location and environment.” This book was published by The City of Sunny Isles Beach, 2012.
