Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM)

Joel Solkoff’s Column, Vol.II, Number 4

What Herzog & de Meuron’s completion of the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) means to the revitalization of Downtown Miami.

The government of Miami approved a revitalization plan—a plan that includes the taxpayers of Miami paying costs to the Herzog & de Meuron’s firm. Miami taxpayers paid $100 million toward the cost of the museum.

Worthy of asking but not of discussion here: Are taxpayers getting what they paid for?

Where will I live? Plus…

Writing on architects plus their role in the imminent global Baby Boom housing crisis,

I have purchased two houses in my lifetime. The first was on Capitol Hill, in Downtown, Washington, D.C. which had a landmark plaque posted on the entrance. It was a beautiful house 100 years old where my former wife and I raised two children.

Zaha Hadid’s Miami compared to my life in rural “Rust Belt” Pennsylvania

“Miami has long been the economic and commercial capital of Latin America, both English and Spanish are commonly understood and it has been the place where many Latinos could be sure their money and their persons were safe from government takeover.”

Crescent Hotel

Joel Solkoff’s Column, Vol.II, Number 1

If I were an architect eager to launch my career in the U.S., I would focus on three states: Texas, California, and Florida

Despite the incredibly exciting renewal taking place in New York City, the reality is that the wealth and power in the United States has shifted. The wealth and power in the U.S. now resides in the West and in the South. With that shift has come opportunities for architects in such states such as Texas, California, and Florida.
