In a recently released list from the
American Institute of Architects, the sole building from Broward County that made the rank among the top 100 buildings in Florida was a parking garage.
Sandwiched between Miami-Dade County, which boasted 22 buildings on the list, and Palm Beach County with 13 buildings, there seems to be a void in the middle. Can Broward County really be so lacking?
At WLRN we have decided that instead of writing a strongly worded letter to the judges, we should ask you which architectural gems might have been overlooked in Broward.
During the next few weeks we will be compiling your submissions and mapping them, and then speaking to architects about your favorite Broward County buildings. Top 10 buildings will be announced on
MiamiHerald.com on June 26. Readers will then be asked to vote online for their top choice.
