Les Beilinson, South Beach architect/preservationist, dies after surgery - Obituaries - Miami-Dade - MiamiHerald.com: "In her book, Deco Delights: Preserving The Beauty and Joy of Miami Beach Architecture, preservation pioneer Barbara Baer Capitman noted just how important Beilinson’s projects were to the Art Deco legacy. “Without saving the great hotels and theaters and storefronts, the district would never exist as we know it,” she wrote. “With the protection of the wonderful architecture, we have seen the other aspects of the district remain and indeed blossom.” Said Beth Dunlop, editor of the architecture magazine MODERN: “Les Beilinson was an early believer in both the beauty of the Art Deco District and the power of historic preservation to transform and elevate communities. Throughout the years, he played a critical role in safeguarding our precious heritage.” He designed Miami Beach’s News Cafe and Armani Exchange store, early landmarks in the South Beach rebirth."
