We are thrilled to share this ARC+ FIU publication which focuses on our collaboration with (SMASH) the Struggle for Miami’s Affordable and Sustainable Housing. It is our sincerest hope that the concepts presented in this study will help in generating support for the SMASH crowdfunding campaign, vision, and future projects.
This publication focuses on the concepts and visions of FIU Architecture students for the subsidized artist and workforce housing in the City of Miami Beach. The students visited two designated sites with Maria Ruiz, Community Development Director for the City of Miami Beach to discuss the vision for the locations and overall strategies for making Miami Beach more affordable.
