Live to Work and Work to Live

The way people live and work is changing lately. More and more people are working out of their home and within walking distance of their work. This trend is caused by many things; because of fuel prices, to reduce stressful commutes, and so that people are able to live healthier lives. Communities in Miami are changing the way they work and live. There is a new type of residence immerging in these communities; they are called live/work spaces.

Live/work spaces offer tenants a place where they are able to obtain a multi use space, one in which they can live and work. If you are looking for a large artist space Miami is a great place to look. It has long been a problem for artists to afford a creative commercial rental space and pay for separate place to live. In art communities such as the Wynwood District you can have both in the same space. Areas of the Wynwood District have developed buildings that allow a combination of commercial and residential units in the same building.

There are many people enjoying the freedom of having a zero commute time. They are saving money and time by living and working in the same space, or immediate area. Within these communities that are built for artist, photographers, poets, jewelry designers, clothing designers, and others who do other types of work such as real estate sales and other career fields. The Wynwood District is now a buzzing place, transformed from a nearly deserted area. This is great for businesses and the growth of the community. There are plans for expansions such as adding coffee shops, more restaurants, and more grocery stores.

This trend in affordable rental space the Wynwood District offers is growing, people are going back to the way people lived many years ago when they used to live in or above their businesses. Everything you may need is being developed for the convenience and comfort of this new class of residents. Artists who choose to live in or near the Wynwood District in Miami are also enjoying the benefits of living near Soho Studios where that can hold events such as fashion shows, art displays, concert space, photography shoots, and among many other events.

Japanese Pop Art Shows

There are plenty of art galleries in Miami, but none fit the description of "cute" quite as well as Kawaii Universe in the Wynwood District does. This studio and shop is modeled after the Japanese pop art form Kawaii, which literally means cute in the Japanese language.

What began as a phenomenon in Japan during the late 1970s and early 1980s quickly made its way overseas to the United States, where many American children found the cute culture in Japan to be appealing. The owner of Kawaii Universe found that most Kawaii art was only found online in the United States, so she wanted to bring that art to life in a brick-and-mortar studio.

Since opening Kawaii Universe, just down the street from Soho Studios in 2011, Kawaii pop art in all its colored and cuteness has become quite popular, and is a focal point during many Art Basel Miami Beach events. As the trend continues to catch on, more and more people are getting involved in Kawaii pop art and are interested in working on their own cute pieces.
