DawnTown Announces Landmark Miami Competition Winners
Posted: Thursday, May 09, 2013 |

Three winners and one honorable mention have been announced in DawnTown Miami's 2013 ideas competition entitled Landmark Miami. This year’s theme focused on how cities are instantly identified by the individual structures within them. Miami already has its share of existing local landmarks, but as the city changes, the competition organizers asked designers to come up with a new symbol for the future. Therefore, architects and designers were tasked with creating an iconic architectural piece that contributes to the image of Miami.

Nice find, Tie... Now they've disabled it... But the cashed version of Google still has the evidence! No way to give Google amnesia.

If that doesn't work, seach the URL and click on the "Cached" button revealed under the grey arrow just to the right of the Google entry....

How can this seriously still stand in a competition if it's not an original design ? To think they will get prize money and publicity at the expense of others is pretty disgusting.
