Event Type

The Fort Lauderdale Historical Society and BroCoMo (Bro-ward Co-unty Mo-dern) will present a Mid-century Modern Architectural Tour highlighting the historic architecture of our city and the unique works of Dan Duckham. Duckham, now in his 80s, was one of a group of trailblazing modernist architects in Florida who rose to prominence in late 1950s and 60s. His designs were inspired by the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright with the fusion of the outdoors and indoors through geometric forms and construction. The tour begins and ends at the New River Inn. Parking is available at the County Garage with entrance on 2nd Street. Lunch is included. Tour leaders are from BroCoMo.

Tickets are $59 per person and can be purchased at https://bit.ly/2xEE1q8.
