The Pritzker Architecture Prize is being awarded Friday at the New World Center on Miami Beach, a building designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry, a past winner of the prize. 

The Pritzker is considered the world's top award for architecture, and the annual prize usually recognizes a living architect. But this year's winner is the German architect Frei Otto, who died in March at age 89. He had been told he'd won the coveted prize.

This is first time the Pritzker Prize is taking place in Miami-Dade County.

If there is one rule at the Miami Shakers and Stirrers Business Networking Mixer it is this: DO NOT forget your business cards.

On a recent Tuesday evening, organizer Janette Tarafa stood at a corner table of Brickell’s Fadò Irish Pub, cross-checking a list of guests. “Okay, let me get your name tag,” Tarafa said as a young woman walked up. “Do you have a business card?”

“I don’t,” said the young woman, “sorry.”
