CAUSE CELEB : MIZNER MANIA
Perhaps no architect past or present haunts the South Florida scenery like Addison Mizner. The creator of Boca Raton, the mind behind the Everglades Club, the visionary that crystallized the philosophy of co-existing a life indoors and out. Inspired by his peripatetic life--living in Mexico, Guatemala, San Francisco among others--Mizner brought back a revival of Spanish Colonial and Mediterranean with his own unique viewpoint and his unbridled imagination.
In a new, beautiful coffee table book, two brilliant historians delve and dissect a life worthy of a Netflix series. Punctuated with great anecdotes and a treasure trove of photos, this is not only a great addition to any carefully curated coffee table collection, but it is as pleasurable to read as a stroll down the most iconic Palm Beach streets.
