I think there should be a signature architecture for Miami Dade, and by this I don't mean art Deco (which is not even original from 305)

What do you mean by signature? Like one defining style or something?

The coral structures that you see in the Gables, South Miami, and scattered elsewhere come to mind. Coral Castle in South Dade is the king. There's some of this scattered in the north part of the County as well.

Also, the Miami Modern district has some unique architecture.

Does a defining style have to be original?

I guess he's referring to large buldings from renowned architects.
When a renown architects take hold of the city, citizens are the main victim.

It would be nice to have something original.

There is mediterrenean architecture all over the American South West also. But that's not original, it's imported from southern Yurop.

I think Miami's architecture is already quite unique, especially in the US. I just wish old buildings were preserved more. Miami does have some beautiful buildings, old and new.
