The only building in Miami Beach by the renowned architect Michael Graves could soon see a very un-Gravesian renovation, according to Curbed.

The building at 1500 Ocean Drive was originally promoted as “The Michael Graves Building,” and Graves himself owned a condo in the building.

Now the property is being renovated by the interior design firm SoJo Design, and, based on the renderings, the new interiors will depart noticeably from the work of the original architect. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
