Homeless Design

Well, as I’ve mentioned previously on this webpage, a large biomedical industry in Miami will prove to be an asset for the business/technology aspect of our community. The UM bioscience center is already paving the way in creating a dominant research foundation in the Health district while also giving back generously to the community.

Camillus House has long been a thorn in the respective thighs of nearly all politicians directly involved in its potential move. The shelter, the State, and the University of Miami have finally come to an agreement which will pave the way for the new $70 million facility next to the new bioscience center. The new shelter (pictured above) will contain nearly 1.5 times the beds of the current facility and is being designed by Rodriguez & Quiroga Architects, one of the preeminent design and restoration architects in our region. Rodriguez & Quiroga are specialists in urban design and the integration of structures with their surroundings as well as for their respective uses; a practice which is fairly unheard of in Miami. The modern design of the Camillus House structure will continue to build on the cutting edge buildings currently reshaping the Health District.

The new Camillus House intends to rehabilitate 120 people a year out of “chronic homelessness.” The Camillus House organization has also set a valiant goal of ridding Miami of homelessness with 10 years of the opening of the new facility. It will concentrate on the treatment and rehabilitation of individuals while also providing the resources to address their basic needs.
