South Beach Lifeguard Stands
       
     
 Perched on the beach's edge, these five whimsical follies have become the signature of South Beach. "Some of the most memorable new buildings in South Beach are also the smallest," touts Architecture magazine. The stands have continued to gather popularity in local, national, and international press and were awarded the AIA Award for Excellence in Design. In an effort to include as many interpretations of the stands as possible, there was a referencing and overlapping of cultural images ranging from the Jetsons cartoons to Shinto temples to miniature golf. In addition, free forms and deco/pop inspired colors enhance the simple construction of bolted and nailed wood members. Collaborated with artist Kenny Scharf on the iconic round life guard station.
