Design-driven South Florida will soon have a center to show off its architecture, Curbed reported.

The local branch of the American Institute of Architects is converting a former  U.S. Post Office  into the Miami Center for Architecture and Design, or MCAD. Allan Shulman designed the project, which is underway, according to Curbed.

The center aims  to “promote awareness, understanding and appreciation of the ways in which architecture and urban design influence the built environment and enhance the quality of life in the community,” according to its web site, which features more photos of the work. [Curbed]Emily Schmall
