Lincoln Road, Miami

Designed by Morris Lapidus in the 1950s, Lincoln Road’s pedestrian corridor became one of the first outdoor malls in America.  The layout and architectural flourishes represent a greater attention towards merging public and commercial spaces that continues to be replicated – arguably through poorly copied town centers.  After a period of decline in the 1970s, Lincoln Road redefined itself as a community hub for artists and young professionals.  However the flexibility of this space has been questioned as it’s catered to tourists over the last few decades.  With the threat of climate change, many now question the site’s long term future.
