I created this image for Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc to celebrate their award-winning restoration work on the Miami-Dade County Courthouse. “This exhilarating Jazz Age poster captures the heroic essence of this awe-inspiring building,” said Parker.
Built in 1928, the Miami-Dade County Courthouse is 360 feet tall and was the first high-rise building constructed in Miami for the County. For decades after construction, it was known as the tallest building south of Baltimore. The building is in the art deco style of South Florida and is clad in terra cotta with a granite base. The plaza encompasses nearly a square city block and includes granite and slate paving. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
