Beach, Florida, Flagler Beach, Mixed-Use Housing, Cultural Diversity, Vernacular Architecture, Environmental Expression, Gentrification, Economic Mix, Planning, Symbiosis
Flagler Beach, Florida will be the stage for this architectural experiment. Chosen for its efforts to hold on to it’s vernacular architecture, economic mix, cultural diversity and environmental expression, while challenged by the pressures of tourism and gentrification that it may not even know exists. Its origin was that of a destination place that converted to a hometown community that now has difficult decisions to make possibly loosing what makes it currently a great place. Flagler Beach could fall prey, as other beach communities have, and become forced under development pressures, into a place that it never intended to be.
