The Discipline of Nature: Architect Alfred Browning Parker
This exhibition examines the 60-year career of the famed Miami architect whose organic tropicalist designs made him a regional leader and a national icon.
“The Discipline of Nature” celebrates Parker’s rich and prolific life. Featuring original drawings, archival photographs, and models and furnishings, the exhibition illustrates Parker’s evolving designs and illuminates his use of natural principles, forms, and materials to create an organic structure for his work.
“As an architect deeply rooted in Florida, Parker designed and built singular works directed by a coherent system of values that directly address issues of place,” said co-Curator Allan Shulman. “Central to his ethos was respect for the earth and its resources, and moral and aesthetic interest in the power of nature.”
