American architect known for a distinctive style of Southwestern architecture which has since been widely copied. Gonzales designed most of Scottsdale, Arizona's, major municipal buildings including Scottsdale City Hall, the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts and the Civic Center Library. His resume also included hundreds of private homes and residences throughout Arizona. Gonzales received 131 separate architectural design awards throughout his career, including several awards from the American Institute of Architects. A hallmark of Gonzales designs was a total lack of right angles within his projects. He died of Alzheimer's disease at his home in Nogales, Arizona, on November 20, 2008, at the age of 84.
