  • Architecture is the most transformative of the arts. It surrounds us, envelops us, caresses us. Despite being located in Miami’s lush urban oasis of Coconut Grove, Max Strang’s iconic Rock House transports its occupants across oceans and realities, into a magically sublime alternative full of whispers of Bali and Sri Lanka, and echoes of the rich cultural legacy of India and Southeast Asia. Technically stunning, and formally exceptional, the houses interaction with its environment, open-plan, and use of local materials (in this case, Miami’s local oolitic limestone), is emblematic of Strang’s philosophy and architectural values of eco-friendly modernism. Winner of multiple awards, and fêted in cinema and on television alike, the Rock House is one of modern residential architecture’s treasures.   “The different typologies of the work explore authentic human experience through provocative spatial constructions that attempt to promote an expansive dia- logue with our places, our environment, our communities, ourselves, and our time”
