DOCOMOMO/US FLORIDA is again teaming up with the Jacksonville Chapter of the American Institute of Architects to highlight some of the greatest architects and architecture of Florida. This year's event will take place at St. Paul's by the Sea Episcopal Church in Jacksonville Beach. The building was designed by Blake Ellis and completed in 1966. Ellis will be on hand to give a presentation on the building's design and construction.
The morning symposium (9:00 to 12:00) will also feature presentations by various DOCOMOMO/US FLORIDA board members on a range of topics pertaining to Modernism in the Sunshine State.
An optional afternoon bus tour will look at some of the most profound buildings at the beaches of Northeast Florida, beginning with Paul Rudolph's last Florida house, the Milam House, in Ponte Vedra Beach and ending with a William Morgan's Dickenson House and Dune House in Atlantic Beach.
Admission to the symposium will be free. The tour costs $55 and includes a box lunch. Space is limited.
