HistoryMiami Opens ‘Discipline of Nature’ Exhibition
Celebrating the legacy of Florida Architect Alfred Browning Parker
It was an opening party fit for a legend as HistoryMiami Museum celebrated its newest exhibition, Discipline of Nature: Architect Alfred Browning Parker in Florida. With a sold out party on what would have been the famed architect’s 100th birthday, champagne flowed during a VIP reception with a guest curators, Allan Shulman and Randolph Henning, who provided a guided tour of the exhibition. Guests, including the area’s top architects and members of the Parker family, were treated to hors d’oeuvres and cocktails before exploring the exhibition that celebrated Parker’s legacy.
The event was capped off with a panel discussion on Parker’s impact and was moderated by former UM School of Architecture dean and Arquitectonica co-founder Elizabeth Plater-Zyber. Discipline of Nature, running now through February 26, 2017, brings new relevance to Parker as the activist architect, writer, speaker, teacher and philosopher of Miami.
“Without question Alfred Browning Parker is Florida’s most renowned and celebrated architect,” Co-Curator Randolph C. Henning said. “What better day to open this exhibition, a celebration of his passionate creative energy and commitment to living in harmony with the environment, than on the day marking the centennial anniversary of his birth.”
