A colorful survey explores the diverse styles of the arbiters of modernism in Florida.
As the offspring of modernism's founders, Alfonso, Gonzalez, Oppenheim, and Peterson have embraced the movement and imbued it with their own flair, producing an array of architectural styles and statements in Florida today. This book explores each architect's repertoire, examines their collective bond to modernist traditions, and uncovers their unique design approaches.
