Rene Gonzalez

Miami-based Rene Gonzalez Architect (RGA) was recognized as one of 50 professionals worldwide who represent the future of design. He links each of his buildings’ designs to their cultural and natural environments, and his firm’s projects reveal a commitment to developing resilient solutions to sea rise in coastal communities. Imaginative use of materials is a hallmark of his work. The fritted glass chosen for Glass in South Beach makes the residential building’s façade appear to dematerialize as it interacts with neighboring structures, adjusting to the historical context of this part of Miami Beach.
