Miami High will undergo a four-year, $50 million restoration and
expansion following decades of disrepair and neglect. The school, which
is currently listed in the National Register of Historic Places will get
three new classroom wings designed by Zyscovich Architects. The
original building, which was built in 1928, is in Little Havana and was
designed by Richard Kiehnel. “Historically it’s the most important
school building in this community,’’ said Victor Alonso, director of
design and sustainability for Miami-Dade County public schools. “We have
few public or even private buildings of this importance. And the
quality of the construction and the design is just magnificent. It’s a
real treasure.’’ [Miami
