Morris-Lapidus-Eden-Roc-Miami-1955

The Eden Roc Miami by architect Morris Lapidus, 1955

I’m over at La Dolce Vita today with a new “Design Under the Influence” where I’m celebrating the man behind the original Fontainebleu, The Americana and Eden Roc hotels in Miami Beach: architect Morris Lapidus.

He once said of his intentions when guests walked into his hotels that he ”wanted people to walk in and drop dead.” Now that’s a design statement!

Enjoy!
