Robert C. Broward -- by Florida Fine Art Blog

Unitarian Universalist Church of Jacksonville in Arlington

Robert C. Broward

Two nice articles I found on Robert C. Broward. Mr. Broward was inducted into the Florida Artist Hall of Fame last year for his contributions to the Architecture of Florida. Mr. Broward’s story is a great example of the power of inspiration and mentoring. A local Florida boy, Robert began as an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright as Mr. Wright was building the Florida Southern College campus. Robert C. Broward spend his life combining the sensibilities learned from Frank Lloyd Wright into the landscape of Florida. In sixty-one years of architectural practice in Florida, Mr. Broward has produced diverse designs including small homes and chapels, as well as large warehouses, office buildings, churches museums, movie theaters, high-rise buildings, oceanfront residences and corporate headquarters. He is also the author of “The Architecture of Henry John Klutho: The Prairie School of Jacksonville” an important book about the famed architect Klutho and his ties to Jacksonville. GL
