Co-hosted by the Florida Chapter and the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach | 1 AIA CES Learning Unit|Elective and 1 credit towards the Certificate in Classical Architecture program (Elective)
Celebrate the publication of the first monograph on Marion Sims Wyeth with a special lecture by author Jane Day followed by a reception and book signing in the Library at the Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach.
From Palm Beach to Shangri La: The Architecture of Marion Sims Wyeth will be the first in depth look at the life and work of Marion Sims Wyeth, from his family background through a Palm Beach career that lasted from 1919 to 1973. Featured here are the legendary abodes of Marjorie Merriweather Post and Doris Duke—Mar-a-Lago and Shangri La, respectively—as well as the less well known but equally spectacular Hogarcito and La Claridad, to name but a few. Wyeth’s architectural drawings and historic photographs, many of which have never been published, and new photographs of iconic structures will be featured. For those unfamiliar with these dream palaces, intimate homes of repose and reflection, for the enjoyment of life and the living of it, the book serves at once as a revelation and an inspiration.
Author Dr. Jane S. Day's original research will expand upon the work of the late architectural historian Dr. Donald Curl. The examination of Wyeth’s architecture will make use of the primary source material housed at the Robert M. Grace Library, the Jack C. Massey Architectural Archives, and the Mr. and Mrs. Paul Van der Grift Architectural Image Collection at the Preservation Foundation. The significance of Wyeth’s legacy to the community will be discussed in a forward by Palm Beach architect and former Landmarks Chairman Eugene Pandula.
Dr. Jane S. Day is an historian and preservationist. For twenty-one years she worked as the consultant to the Landmarks Preservation Commission of the Town of Palm Beach. She also completed projects all over South Florida and in the Bahamas. Using storytelling as a strategy, her goal is to make the history of the built environment interesting and accessible to all. The more the public understands the place where they live, the more urgent it becomes to protect it.
