offering visual contact with the ocean from the center of the urban space, had been overlooked or forgotten. By honoring the original intentions of John A. Collins for the design of the formal gardens, history will have been corrected.
An effort has been made to integrate east and west portions of the park by covering the Collins Avenue asphalt with a green area and reorganizing the ocean side parking lot continuing the tree lined promenade which connects the park to the beach - visually as well as physically.
The Miami Beach area was developed in the first decades of the twentieth century. In the thirties, when art deco was the fashion of the day; more than eight hundred buildings were designed and built in the area inspired by art deco. This international movement was based, for a large part, on geometric design. Inspired by art nouveaux as well as the constructivist and functionalist approach to form. The geometry in my work, and especially my inclination towards working with curved forms and lines, relates my form language to that of the surrounding architecture of the early period - even though I avoid decorative redundancy.
