Chad Oppenheim

Chad Oppenheim is a Miami based architect (and cornell architecture grad - yeshimesh). The majority of the images on his website are renderings rather than pictures of built works, but regardless, what I like about his work is his interest in the facade. His facades become skins, layered to filter light, air, public and private. Responding to Miami's climate, he often incorporates exposed interior walkways and gardens by pulling the building's skin away from the building's main mass.
