The Florida Trust, in partnership with the University of Florida and the Florida Division of Historical Resources, will hold Florida Mid-Century Modern Architecture: Fort Lauderdale, the first in its educational workshop series to be held throughout Florida. Local support of the event includes the City of Fort Lauderdale, Broward Section of the American Planning Association, and the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society.

The event serves to spotlight Florida’s important Mid-Century Modern historic resources with a presentation of the completed historic context report by Marty Hylton, director of the University of Florida Historic Preservaiton Program thanks to grant funds from the Florida Division of Historical Resources. The report draws attention to the architectural style and time period, as well as pivotal architects and environmental conditions central to the movement. How to document historic structures using geographic systems and state inventory forms as well as developing an advocacy campaign for a historic building will be discussed with a special focus on the Fort Lauderdale Courthouse.

Florida Mid-Century Modern Architecture: Fort Lauderdale is free and open to the public. The first part of the event will include a site visit at the Fort Lauderdale Courthouse, which was included on the 2018 Florida’s 11 to Save, followed by classroom-style discussion at the South Side School / Cultural Arts Center which was honored with a Florida Trust preservation award this year.
