Arquitectonica presents “The Video Vault,” a regular series of clips that take you inside the creative process that has defined the skyline of Miami and made an impact on the built environment around the world.

We invite you to enjoy a glimpse into both our history and our latest approach to architecture, landscape architecture, master planning, interior design, product design and more.


bob_lhsArquitectonica’s Laurinda Spear teamed with home improvement pioneer and legend Bob Vila to perform a televised renovation of a 15-year-old tract house in need of some TLC.

Bob Vila’s Home Again – Home Additions and Renovations Projects show features Miami, the hometown of Vila and Arquitectonica. Home Again – Episode 1201 features Vila giving his personal 1980’s tour including the history of the city and areas such as Coral Gables, Coconut Grove and Downtown Miami.

The program mentions Arquitectonica’s design influence and Vila invites firm co-founder Ms. Spear to help redesign the house.
