GLASS, the boutique and very luxurious condo tower South-of-Fifth that architect Rene Gonzalez designed for Terra Group, has just been completeted, and yes it's pretty darn glassy. A protege of the late, great Mark Hampton—an icon of Floridian modernism even though he only did a few extant things in Miami—Gonzalez's style has fully evolved into its own.

To oversimplify the difference, Gonzalez's style is like Mark's but shinier. And where Mark's modernism was so strictly restrained, Gonzalez's is more exhuberant and dramatic. "I think my work is based on rigor, as is his, but also relies on intuition." says Gonzalez.
