Says Archie: The beach and the city are perfectly intertwined in this metropolis. My favorite piece of trivia included in this map is "stiltsville", a series of buildings (mostly bars) that once stood, accessible only by boat, hovering over the bay. Multiple hurricanes eventually destroyed them, but the symbolism of the city extending into the ocean, albeit on stilts, is totally romantic to me. Of course, the city on dry land still stands as a monument to all things quintessentially Miami.

So Why All The Circles?
New research indicates that GPS's are hindering our ability to create mental maps of our surroundings. Archie's Press maps aim to install a "Map from the Mind", simplifying structures and neighborhoods in the most efficient and beautiful way. The circle, our Universe's softest shape, is the clearest graphic to convey size and connection.
