Who is Andrés Duany?
He (born September 7, 1949) is an American architect and urban planner.
Duany was born in New York City but grew up in Cuba until 1960. He attended The Choate School
(now Choate Rosemary Hall) and received his undergraduate degree in architecture and urban planning
from Princeton University. After a year of study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, he received a
master's degree in architecture from the Yale School of Architecture.
In 1977, Duany was co-founder of the Miami firm Arquitectonica, with his wife, Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk,
Bernardo Fort-Brescia, Laurinda Hope Spear, and Hervin Romney. Arquitectonica became famous for
its signature style, a dramatic, expressive 'high tech' modernism. The firm's Atlantis Condominium was
featured prominently in the opening credits of "Miami Vice."
Duany and Plater-Zyberk founded Duany Plater Zyberk & Company (DPZ) in 1980, headquartered in
Miami, Florida. DPZ became a leader in the national movement called the New Urbanism, which
seeks to end suburban sprawl and urban disinvestment. The firm first received international
recognition in the 1980s as the designer of Seaside, Florida and Kentlands, Maryland, and has completed designs and codes for over two hundred new towns, regional plans, and community revitalization projects. At DPZ, Duany also led the development of comprehensive municipal zoning ordinances that prescribe appropriate urban arrangement for all uses and all densities.
Duany is a co-founder and emeritus board member of the Congress for the New Urbanism, established in 1993. He has co-authored two books: "Suburban Nation: The Rise of Sprawl and the Decline of the American Dream" and "The New Civic Art." Duany has worked as visiting professor at many institutions and holds two honorary doctorates.
He also helped design Cornell, a community in Markham, Ontario, Canada.
In 2001, he and Plater-Zyberk were awarded the Vincent Scully Prize by the National Building Museum in recognition of their contributions to the American built environment.
He was featured in the Canadian documentary Radiant City (2006) on suburban sprawl.
Andre' Duany is demanding the power to usurp our free speech and our representative government with a tyrannical form of government in Florida that will dictate every aspect of our future lives. He intends to establish a fascist form of government in our state to bypass our individual voices. Duany clearly states he wants to eliminate public meetings to start Seven 50 in Florida, then the United States and then the United Nations.
