Instead of art deco, North Beach is known for Miami modernism, or MiMo, a postwar style featuring flat roofs, acute angles, and curved walls. The 1950s Deauville Beach Resort, designed by Morris Lapidus, is a quintessential example. North Beach boasts the largest concentration of MiMo buildings in South Florida, earning it a 2009 designation on the National Register of Historic Places.
