Tropic Magazine's summer issue is out. This Fort Lauderdale real estate and design book has its usual mix of midcentury architecture, rich photography, preservation advocacy, and design intelligence, all in a high-production-value package. One thing they don't have is a very good website, or linkable articles. So, for the time being, take a gander at Tropic Magazine's digital issue (you flip through it like you would the real thing), and these extremely relevant articles:
pp. 13-15 Mid-Century Modern Monument: Castro Convertibles Showroom
pp. 25-29 Architect Stephen Magliocco's well-scaled modern house in Victoria Park
pp. 31-34 The jet age Pier 66 Hotel, often ascribed to Frank Lloyd Wright, wasn't designed by him at all, but it still makes a pretty amazing architectural statement.
pp. 86-89 The Young Art Museum, by Spillis Candela, just opened in Davie.
pp. 100 This Tiki god was at the long-gone Tiki Gardens.
