Morris Lapidus - Architect | Icon | American Original
Architect Morris Lapidus was best known for his glamorous Miami Beach hotels, the Fontainebleau and Eden Roc, and for saying “Too much is never enough.” But he had one project that was his favorite: Miami Beach’s Lincoln Road Mall.
In this two and a half minute film from 1999, Lapidus, then 96, talks about Lincoln Road and the whimsical shapes and structures he placed there, and rollerblading.
Lapidus also recalls the controversy over the Fontainebleau, the iconic building that he curved when the critics said it was not allowed.
Lapidus died in 2001 at age 98.
