Penguin Hotel, South Beach, Miami.

Built in 1948 and designed by Henry Hohauser, the Penguin is a shining example of the late 1940s art deco style. The Hotel features “horizontality” as a prominent element throughout the structure, with overhanging strip windows and a horizontal railing located on the front facade. The original name of the building was "The Golden Dawn Hotel" before it was changed to the Penguin Hotel.
