23 Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach, Florida

This Art Deco building was designed by Russel Pancoast in 1930. The architect made two decisions that gave it a distinctive appearance. The first was the use of fossilized Paleolithic coral for the façade. The second was the bas reliefs by Gustav Boland. The carvings include a depiction of the Spaniard’s conquest of Florida. This was originally the home of the Miami Beach Public Library and Arts Center. It is now the Bass Museum of Art.
