Architectural walking tour of Fort Lauderdale created

The Fort Lauderdale Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, in collaboration with the School of Architecture at Florida Atlantic University and the support of the Downtown Development Authority of Fort Lauderdale, have created an interactive brochure – An Architectural Walking Tour of Downtown Fort Lauderdale.

This guide and its map celebrate some of the best examples of local architecture and sites in the downtown area in honor of the City of Fort Lauderdale centennial, which will be celebrated in 2011.

Particularly significant, are sites that are recognized by international architects through design awards, and also highlighted are buildings that stand out on a national stage. These sites teach us lessons about how to build and how to live in South Florida.

“Our best buildings take advantage of our sub-tropical climate and lush landscape,” says Yvette London AIA, President | American Institute of Architects Fort Lauderdale Chapter. “Whether historical or modern, each has made a recognized contribution to the unique character of Fort Lauderdale and the indoor-outdoor lifestyle that characterizes our sense of place.”

The Architectural Walking Tour of Downtown Fort Lauderdale is available at Broward Cultural Division’s Cultural Information Center located on the ground floor of the Broward County Main Library. Call
