Fontainebleau Miami Beach

Miami modernist architect Morris Lapidus was ridiculed for the Fontainebleau when it opened in 1954, but his provocative curvilinear building ultimately ushered in a new chapter of edgy resort design. The Rat Pack–loving La Ronde supper club no longer exists, but parts of the lobby’s original bow tie-patterned marble floor, an ode to Lapidus’s necktie of choice, remains, as does his “Staircase to Nowhere.” These favorites are contemporized by James Turrell LED lighting installations and a trifecta of Ai Weiwei–designed chandeliers worth a cool million dollars each.
