I am an architecture student at Lausanne researching for our studio habitat in Miami in the context of a year long project on Havana. Could you send me links to information sources (available on the internet or article magazines, books etc..) on the contemporary urban and housing challenges Maimi faces.

I'm not sure what you mean by your “studio habitat in Miami in the context of a year long project on Havana,” asking for “links to information sources (available on the internet or article magazines, books etc..) on the contemporary urban and housing challenges Miami faces.” Miami and Havana are very different places. If you studio will be about Havana, what are you questions about Miami?
Here's an article that talks about two current problems in Miami: the collapse of the condo boom and the problem of affordable housing for the poor. Havana, of course, has no condo boom and although virtually everyone is poor that means there is less of a gap between the rich and the poor.
