"Probably the most influential resort community since Versailles."
"Seaside is an experiment not just in planning and design, but in living."
"Perhaps the most important new piece of architecture in the country. [It] teaches us that there is another kind of growth-growth that occurs in concentrated, walkable settlements instead of an endlessly dispersed sprawl."
—The Boston Globe
Tourists from every continent travel to Seaside, Florida, to enjoy its beautiful beaches, its award-winning architecture, its diverse restaurants, and its wide program of cultural and sports events. Designed by small-town-planning pioneers Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Seaside boasts work from renowned architects such as Leon Krier and Walter Chatham. Even the Prince of Wales, England's and perhaps the world's harshest architectural critic, has called Seaside a model of humane urban planning.
Now the serene twilight cityscapes, intimate interiors, and even the Yellow House (the first home in Seaside) are presented to you in this dazzling collection of twelve notecards. By flipping through this artistically photographed assortment, it is easy to see all of the elements that make Seaside the small town that has influenced architecture throughout the world.
