The Miami-based architecture, interior design, and planning firm Oppenheim Architecture shared images of their latest luxury mixed-use project, the Jewel. In February 2020, we connected with firm founder Chad Oppenheim for a Studio Snapshot interview. During the interview, we discussed the firm’s work and design ethos. “The practice is much more about creating a platform for expression,” he shared. 

“We started by doing projects in up and coming areas and using architecture as we way to extract the best return on investment for our clients,” shared Oppenheim. “Further down, we wanted to see how architecture can be as elemental as possible. Little by little, we were brought onto projects on spectacular sites, and we wanted to make the most out of them – bringing feeling and emotion as part of our ethos.”

Commenting on the project, Oppenheim shares, “It was crucial for us to understand and uncover the spirit of place – the site’s histories and ecologies, so the architectural “object” wasn’t an arbitrary form, but one that resonated with the land and its people. These three crystals of varying proportions and relationships were captured with 3D scanning and, with minimal modification, translated into the full-size towers that illuminate the coast today.”

According to the firm, the project is the first beach-front development built along Australia‘s Gold Coast in over 30 years. The Jewel is the winning competition proposal lead by the developer RDG. Oppenheim Architecture collaborated with DBI Design to develop the project’s interior design.

Once The Hyatt Foundation has revealed early March as the announcement date of the Pritzker Prize 2021 Winner, the speculation has begun to swirl around which architect will be named the next laureate of the trophy. What used to be a somewhat predictable award has become less so in recent years, and if you look at the list of people who have won before, you will realize that anything is possible.

We want to hear from our readers —not just about who probably will, but about who should win the prize, and why. Cast your vote in the poll below.
