More About Building South Florida: Art Deco Architecture

South Florida's recovery from the economic woes of the Great Depression was aided by a new form of architecture. Known at the time as Moderne and now beloved as Art Deco, it celebrated the community and broke all sorts of barriers. Join history educator Sylvia Gurinsky for a look at how local Art Deco served the public, then the country during World War II - and staged a comeback from neglect as the 21st century approached.
