tropic panorama D rawn From Miami The inaugural exhibit at the new Miami Center for Architecture and Design, Drawn From Miami explores our city through the hands of the architects, urban designers and landscape architects who have shaped its multidimensional urban fabric. Exhibit materials were "drawn" from a variety of sources including museum archives, academic institutions, private collectors and, most importantly, the personal collections of individual architects. Drawn From Miami detaches itself from the digital and technological aspects of design; it is centered around hand drawings, as they are a window into the creative process and personal vision of architects. The exhibit's focus will be the evolving role of drawings in the documentation and shaping of the city. The scope spans the unique mix of Miami's local, national and international designers, examining buildings, master plans and installations that define the city's identity.
