“The Prairie Avenue Residence directly evolved out of a close friendship with my client, who is Lebanese. It marks a fruitful point of connection, found through a shared appreciation for design and culture. Traveling to Beirut last summer deepened my understanding and appreciation of the people and history of the region, and I was deeply saddened by the events of this year. I am grateful to Architects for Beirut and Design Miami/ for coordinating this meaningful effort.” —Rene Gonzalez

 

Miami-based architect Rene Gonzalez has donated this signed photograph of his design for Prairie Avenue Residence, beautifully captured by photographer Michael Stavaridis. Situated in Miami Beach, the Prairie Avenue Residence is elevated on stilts as a response to the threat of sea-level rise, with a design that both acknowledges traditional precedents and is adapted to contemporary living in harmony with the changing environment. The residence is organized with an entwined relationship to the tropical landscape, and the image captures the moment of arrival upon ascending a retractable entry stair. The image will be printed as a limited edition of five by photographer Michael Stavaridis.

 

For Rene Gonzalez, architecture is a sensory experience. His approach is based on the idea that the buildings we inhabit have a profound impact on our lives, and therefore should be designed to leave lasting, positive impressions.

Gonzalez founded his firm, RGA, in 1997, and has since received a number of prestigious awards, including two from the National American Institute of Architecture. He was the first Miami architect in more than 50 years to be honored twice by the organization for projects in this city. He is also the recipient of AIA Miami’s 2012 H. Samuel Kruse Silver Medal for Design, and the firm received AIA Miami’s 2011 Firm of the Year award, among many others.
