Landscape Chair & Architecture Faculty’s Home Featured in FIU Magazine

The home of Landscape Architecture Chair, David Rifkind and Architecture faculty, Holly Zickler was recently featured in FIU Magazine.

The article highlights Rifkind and Zickler’s 2,700-foot industrial styled home located across a public park in South Miami, FL. Both architects and advocates of sustainable design, they began their “Tin-Box” project in 2011 featuring solar panels and steel construction.

The home is a culmination of Rifkind’s and Zickler’s personal values and interests and their efforts to build a home that reduces their family’s carbon footprint.
