HistoryMiami Celebrates the Architecture of Alfred Browning Parker

Alfred Browning Parker was one of the most popular and most prolific architects in South Florida. During his 60-year career, launched in the 1940s and lasting until his death in 2011, Parker designed over 500 structures, won awards and accolades from critics countrywide, and earned the respect of colleagues including Frank Lloyd Wright. Today, the number of buildings designed by Parker has dwindled to less than 100 — "Maybe even less than 50," estimates Rudolph C. Henning, architect, author, and co-curator of HistoryMiami's upcoming exhibit, "The Discipline of Nature: Architect Alfred Browning Parker." Here's a glimpse at the exhibit, which opens September 23.
