The world’s cultural spotlight has been focused on the Design District for more than a decade now. It continues to be the capital of Art Basel Miami – the worldwide modern art fair and design exhibition that is an extension of the famous Art Basel Switzerland. More recently, however, it has become a chic residential destination known for avant-garde interior design, internationally acclaimed architects, and a small collection of historic bungalow-style homes.
Top chefs from around the world are opening restaurants frequently in the area, as are acclaimed design houses like Fendi Casa, Emilio Robba, Ligne Roset, and others. Luxury fashion by Dior, Burberry, Hermes, Cartier, Harry Winston, and a number of galleries and museums complete the high-end atmosphere.
