Broward County has grown immensely in the span of a century, emerging as a metropolitan area and major tourist destination and its architectural development has an interesting history.
This exhibition, a series of photographs on panels, represents some of the most prominent examples of architecture throughout the County, charting its growth from the settlement of Fort Lauderdale into its most current iterations. From suburbs to skyscrapers, this exhibition aims to acquaint the public with the buildings, their architectural history and the urban phenomena throughout the region.
Through original research, the curators hope that the exhibit will serve as a catalyst for more in depth studies regarding the area’s built environment, while celebrating and exploring how buildings embody past ideals, present concerns, and future aspiration.
