Frank M. Button, Architect

(1866–1938)

The City of Coral Gables’ first landscape architect, Frank Button, laid out spacious drives, bridle paths, golf courses and entrances in accordance with the Garden City Movement. He envisioned a suburban landscape of nine-tenths native plants and one-tenth exotic plants, although time has reversed the proportions. His work contributed to the creation of one of the nation’s first planned communities and one of Florida’s most beautiful cities.
