Miami is the quintessential world city. Young, dynamic, and diverse, the city finds its longstanding role as a commercial center and port of entry reflected in its emerging status as a center for art and design in the western hemisphere. This SAH Study Day offers a chance to visit two recent examples of the city’s architectural patrimony, the newly-opened Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and 1111 Lincoln Road. Pritzker Prize laureates Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron designed both buildings, whose patrons – Robert Wennet and Terry Riley – will welcome Study Day participants. Among the exhibitions on display at PAMM will be a site-specific installation by Ai Weiwei.

Along with becoming part of the European Union as of 2013, Croatia has become one of the most sought after travel destinations in the world. The 2014 SAH Croatia Study Tour will present the many layers of this region’s rich architectural and urban history from the Ottoman and Roman Periods to the present day in harmony with its Adriatic seascapes. We begin in Sarajevo, which will be commemorating in 2014 the 1st World War Centennial with the major cultural project “Sarajevo Heart of Europe,” with a visit to the Svarazo House where Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was shot in 1914. Moreover, the tour is precisely planned to experience these riches during the balmy Mediterranean summer together with 14thVenice Architectural Biennale—arguably the largest and most prominent architectural exhibition in the world under the curatorship of Rem Koolhaas, one of architecture’s leading polemic voices.
This special tour features the precisely conceived itinerary of the most important gems of architecture and cities with the luxury and ease of traveling aboard the Corinthian cruise ship. Expert architect Boris Srdar, who has practiced in both Zagreb and the US, will lead the SAH tour. As a witness to Croatia’s transformation over many decades, he will offer his insights into the urban changes and challenges of historic preservation and adaptive reuse of landmark structures.
