I’ve decided for today to focus on the architecture of downtown Fort Lauderdale which is a mixture of commercial and residential buildings all mingling together.
This doesn’t look like a city built with annual hurricanes in mind. Fort Lauderdale is about living in the present. These windows welcome some of the most beautiful views in the world. Let the glass rain down (as it has) but we will live beautifully in the moment.
Juxtaposed with all of the glass is stone. Limestone is king in Florida. One of our natural resources.
I’m not usually a fan of such stern structures, but I find this one interesting. It’s not a huge block of cement as many modern buildings are. This is someone’s vision. Someone was pushing through the safety zone of what was considered beautiful.
Check out the beauty on the other side.
The city has many parking garages, all in a different style. For you visual learners, pay attention to the style of yours and you can find the way back to your car from a good distance. Trust me, I’m the worst at directions and this detail helps me always.
Sun and clouds reflecting beautifully.
This is just a small glimpse of the architecture of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Stay tuned for more of my beautiful city.
