About this title

Synopsis:

With nearly two hundred lush, color photographs, writer and photographer Steven Brooke takes the reader from the earliest pioneer stages of the town of Seaside to its development as an emerging cultural and intellectual center.Steven Brooke's Seaside is the guide to the town of Seaside, complete with maps, walking tours, aerial views, and a look inside some of Seaside's most beautifully decorated homes. Brooke's text includes a discussion of the architectural elements that make up the Florida style and elaborates on the widely hailed urban design principles in effect at Seaside.

From the Inside Flap:

"I believe that the lessons they've worked out at Seaside have very serious applications both in rural areas and in our cities."
- Charles, the Prince of Wales, A Vision of Britain: A Personal View of Architecture

"The photos are theatrical."
- Metropolis

"A joy to behold."
- Columbia (SC) Herald

Constructed on the belief that "our lives are unalterably affected by our architectural surroundings," the small community of Seaside was founded in 1980 on a remote eighty acres near the town of Seagrove Beach along Florida's northwest Gulf coast.
Designed by small-town planning pioneers Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Seaside boasts work from renowned architects such as Leon Krier and Walter Chatham. Through his close friendship with Seaside founder Robert Davis, writer and architectural photographer Steven Brooke gained unmatched insight into the thinking and planning that gave birth to the unique community.

With nearly two hundred color photographs, the volume takes the reader from the earliest pioneer stages of the town with its dirt streets and scrub landscape to its development as an emerging cultural and intellectual center. Brooke's text includes a discussion of the architectural elements that compose the Florida style and elaborates on the widely hailed urban design principles in effect at Seaside. Even Great Britain's Prince Charles has used Seaside as a model of humane urban planning.

Tourists from every continent travel to Seaside to enjoy its beautiful beaches, award-winning architecture, diverse restaurants, and wide program of sports and cultural events. This extensively revised second edition of Seaside includes maps, walking tour information, aerial views, a look inside some of Seaside's most beautifully decorated homes, and a list of every town structure and its designer.

Steven Brooke is an internationally acclaimed architectural photographer. He is the recipient of the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome and three Graham Foundation grants, in addition to having received the National Honor Award for Photography from the American Institute of Architects, the highest award in the field of architectural photography. A fellow with the American Academy in Rome and Albright Institute in Jerusalem, he is an adjunct professor in the department of architecture at the University of Miami in Florida.

Brooke is the author of Views of Rome and Views of Jerusalem and the Holy Land.
