It’s not everyday you get to write an architecture story that brings together Mies Van Der Rohe and Jimmy Buffett. Thankfully, god gave us the Miami Marine Stadium, one of Florida’s modernist masterpieces, designed by Cuban-born architect Hilario Candela in 1963. (That’s him above, posing before the stadium as it was under construction.)
This is a place with a fascinating history (one that is now chronicled at the Coral Gables Museum). Get the full scoop in ARCHITECT Magazine.

What is and isn’t working for Latinos on TV? I go through the offerings — in English and Spanish — for KCRW’s The Business, covering everything from Devious Maids to The Bridge. If you’re a Hollywood producer, think of this as a good guide of do’s and don’ts for making TV for Latinos. If you simply like watching television, well, you might make a discovery or two…
Listen to my story here. For the full podcast of The Business, click here.
