 Join Preserve the 'Burg for the second program in our 2018 program series, “Unseen St. Pete: Hidden Faces & Unknown Places." This program will explore some of our city’s largely overlooked mid-century modern gems, with a focus on two of the city's leading architects, Sanford Goldman and William Harvard.

Ninety percent of Florida’s built environment was created after World War II with nearly 47,000 houses constructed in St. Pete during the 1950s. Despite the prevalence of post war construction, there remains an almost willful ignorance of the architectural styles of that era, due in part to a lack of appreciation for the ethics of modernism that drove post-war American architects.     

Local architect Tim Clemmons of Place Architecture will moderate the evening that includes  a Harvard family member (William Harvard is deceased) and Derek Kilborn, Manager of the city's Urban Planning and Historic Preservation Division who will discuss the contributions of Sanford Goldman. It promises to be a special program!

Pictured to the left is a young Sanford Goldman with Frank Lloyd Wright in Wright's Taliesin design studio. Pictured above is William Harvard with plans in hand for the upside down pyramid pier then under construction and that he designed.

A light reception with cash bar will be held at 6pm.  Program will start at 6:30pm. 

This is a free event.  Registration is recommended as space can fill.  Please consider membership to PTB so that we may continue to host programs like this and keep St. Pete special!
