Max Strang

Founding Principal + Partner

For 20 years Max Strang has demonstrated a commitment to creating high quality designs with a focus on academic and professional engagement. His design approach acutely considers the future impact climate change will have on residential and urban development in the coming decades, and his iconic designs thoughtfully integrate with South Florida’s subtropical climate.

Elevated to the College of Fellows in 2016 and consistently recognized locally, regionally, and nationally for the strength of his design work, Max has won dozens of awards, including the 2013 AIA Miami Silver Medal for Design, and 2018 AIA Florida Medal of Honor for Design.

Max has been published in over 200 magazines, news interviews and books. His firm's monograph, ‘Environmental Modernism: The Architecture of [STRANG],' released in 2017, reflects the concepts of “environmental modernism” showcased in the firm's numerous residential projects. Max has generated an impressive and well-crafted body of work that is consistent, rigorous, and varied. His use of materiality, detailing and scale pushes projects beyond necessity into the world of architecture that is art.
