US ARCHITECTURE (ADDS VIDEO) – 30 Years after Andrew: Miami Beach transformed by lifeguard towers

Spain, UK

Architect William Lane drew on South Florida’s architectural heritage when Miami Beach hired his firm to design new lifeguard towers to replace the ones destroyed when Hurricane Andrew slammed the area in August 1992.

The 36 towers distributed along the beachfront, which extends 11.5 km (7 mi) from its northern tip to South Point Park, are «a great example of using public space,» Lane told Efe.
