Inside Iconic Houses Tour - Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
Join us 31 March for another Inside Iconic Houses tour! We visit the iconic Vizcaya, which was the winter home of industrialist James Deering. Completed between 1916 and 1922, Vizcaya was conceived as a modern and subtropical interpretation of eighteenth-century Italian villas found at country estates of the Veneto region of northern Italy. Vizcaya's modernity lies not in its appearance as a neo-baroque Venetian palazzo in Miami Bay but in its amenaties, which were highly innovative for the time.

Maison Cazenave Back to its Original State
Designed by Swiss architect Hans Demarmels, Maison Cazenave (1965) perches on the heights of a village near Orthez in the Southwest of France. The new owners are restoring the house to its original state. A first organized visit by the regional architects association took place in February and regular visits every first Sunday of the month are scheduled for later this year.
