Lucky day for me yesterday: Chad Mason, local musician and good guy, invited me to visit his Wigwam home. Built in 1940, it's an international style chunk of Miami Beach planted at the east end of the MLK historic district. Here is some more Wigwam info from another fan.
Here is the wonderful Indian Brave keeping watch over the Wigwam and neighborhood.

We architecture tourists have a gold mine on Auburn Avenue which deserves many more blog entries. Get over there and enjoy!
There are more Wigwam neighborhood pictures in my Flickr slide show.
