MOSH, AIA Jacksonville  present architecture exhibit

The Museum of Science & History of Jacksonville and AIA Jacksonville have teamed up to present a new exhibit: Jacksonville by Design — AIA Celebrates 100 Years of Architecture. Located in The Loft Gallery on the third floor, the exhibit features a look into Jacksonville’s building past, punctuated by current architectural favorites.
The exhibit opened Nov. 3 and will run through September 2013. The Haskell Co. is sponsoring the exhibit, which comprises six eras: The Great Fire (1901), The City Rises Again (1901-1919), Boom and Bust (1920-1940), The War and Afterward (1940-1955), Mid-Century Development (1955-1980) and Continuing Urban/Suburban Expansion (1980 – early 2000s). A seventh era will be added early in 2013.
“Starting with the Great Fire and continuing through modern times, this exciting exhibit will tell the story of our history over the past 100 years through significant architectural accomplishments that comprise our region’s rich architectural heritage,” says Tom Norman, AIA Jacksonville chapter president. “These buildings are physical milestones documenting moments in history that embody the influences of the time, people, culture and place that shaped their creation.”
“Jacksonville by Design – AIA Celebrates 100 Years of Architecture” is the result of a vision set forth by MOSH and AIA Jacksonville chapter to present Jacksonville’s history through the celebration of its architecture.
Maria Hane, executive director of MOSH, said the exhibit is the hard work of many professionals.
“It truly is symbolic of the power of collaboration to create dynamic, engaging experiences that are educational and entertaining,” Hane said.
