Spillis Candela, a signature brand for Miami architecture, is gone in name, but not in fact. A decade after it was sold to its current corporate parent, the Coral Gables firm is now AECOM Design. It has dropped the names of retired partners Peter Spillis and Hilario Candela. It is the oldest architectural firm in continuous operation in Miami-Dade County. AECOM, derived from Architecture Engineering Construction Operations Management, is headquartered in California.
