President, Florida Association of Architects

The Florida Association of Architects this year attains
its Fiftieth Anniversary. In those years it has grown in
numbers and strength and has steadily expanded its fields
of interest and its sphere of influence. It contributes more
and more to the profession it serves and to the welfare
of the people of Florida. It will continue to grow and con-
tinue to expand its activities. It is an appropriate time to
sharpen its tools.
In this issue of THE FLORIDA ARCHITECT is a
proposed text of new Bylaws for the FAA. It provides
for sweeping changes in our organization. If adopted, it
will drastically change our structure. It deserves your care-
ful review and you should know something of the study
which produced this proposal, the people involved in that
study, and the benefits expected from its activation.
The task was assigned to your Executive Committee-
the current officers and immediate past president-and
the Executive Director. This group met for several lengthy
sessions and called on various committee chairmen and
others experienced and knowledgeable in FAA affairs for
their thinking. After meetings in Orlando, Tampa, Jack-
sonville and St. Louis a draft was finally completed and
submitted to the Board where it was reviewed and ap-
proved for submission to the Convention.
The essential objectives are four:
1. Develop stronger programs through improved
2. Streamline committee structure to increase activ-
ity and effectiveness.
3. Provide a broader training ground for officers
of the Association.
4. Establish a better alignment with the Institute
as the Florida Region.
The suggested structure to achieve these objectives is
as follows:
1. The Board of Directors selected by the Chapters
as before.
2. The Officers -
President Designate-Vice President,
3. Five commission Chairmen, each responsible for
a group of related committees, and elected by
the Board.
4. The Regional Judiciary Committee as before.
A review of the Bylaws will fill in the structural out-
line more completely, but I am primarily concerned with
how this organization is expected to work. Perhaps the
key position is the President Designate-Vice President.
During his year of training for the Presidency, he serves
as chairman of the Commissions and in this position be-

comes a vital force in developing and implementing the
programs of the Association. He is placed in a position to
assure his complete understanding of all the activities of
FAA and at the same time provides a full year to plan
and organize his own administration, and be in a position
to present his programs to the Convention at which he is
formally elected to the Presidency.
Committee Chairmen and the Commission Chairmen
will be selected at the pre-convention and post-convention
Board Meetings in November. As Chairman of the Com-
missions, the President-Designate will be able to call a
planning and orientation meeting of the commissions and
committees prior to January at which time each commit-
tee should plan its program for the following year, pre-
pare any necessary budget requirements and coordinate its
activities with other committees.
With this pre-planning made possible by the new
structure, the new Board will be able to consider and
authorize the major portions of the year's activities at
its January Meeting! Each Committee can have its pro-
gram planned and know immediately what funds are
available for its execution. The Staff will be able to offer
greater assistance to committees through more efficient
organization of effort.
Aside from the hoped for advantages of greater and
more efficient activity suggested above, the present seven
primary offices will be expanded to ten-each with an
inherent responsibility and opportunity for service. The
traditional five offices from which FAA presidents have
been chosen will be expanded to seven potential candi-
dates in addition to the several committee chairmanships
and Board positions from which men may be selected for
the President Designate-Vice President office.
In this Golden Anniversary Year, it is something of
a shock to realize I have been active in FAA for one fifth
of that time and have been an officer for five of those
years. Next year I will assume the office of Past-President
and gradually join the ranks of those who have preceded
me. If experience and years of service can be equated with
insight and knowledge, my personal opinion may be of
some value in the matter before us. It is from these years
of experience and whatever good judgement I may poscss
that I sincerely recommend to you these prepared new
Bylaws and urge that you adopt them.

The American City... Today And Tomorrow

Managing Editor
Architectural Forum

The following are excerpts of Peter
Blake's address to the Houston Chap-
ter of A.I.A. and will be presented
in two parts.
Part I
The trouble is not that it is im-
possible to outline a way of attaining
a better kind of American city in
rational, one-two-three fashion. The
trouble is that before one attempts
to do that, one should really try and
understand what it is that shapes our
cities today or rather, mis-shapes
The forces that mis-shape our cities
today are so chaotic, so irrational, so
ludicrous, that the only way one can
possibly describe them is in the man-
ner of a kind of variety show, which
consists of a series of brief sketches,
each of which illuminates some aspect
of what we are talking about.
On Highway Planners
The highway planner is a man who
leads a truly charmed life. I can think
of no other professional who has,
over the past 40 years or so, chalked
up a more impressive record of mon-
umental failure than the highway
planner. His record of dismal flop-
pery is unmatched in the history of
modern man.
He has built millions, perhaps bil-
lions, of square miles of concrete and
asphalt road surface. He has built
clover leaves and curlicues. He has
built double decks and triple decks
and quadruple decks. And every time
he completes another one of these
fantastic landscapes of his astonish-
ing mind, the traffic gets worse and
worse and worse-and he decides that
what we need is another few square
miles of stuff.
The trouble with today's highway
planning has nothing to do with the
qualities of those highways them-
selves. It has to do with the way
these super highways affect other ele-
ments of the urban scene. It is all
very well for highway planners to
dump several thousand cars per hour
into our midst, but their responsibility
ends at the foot of the exit ramp.

After that, the whole thing becomes
the problem of somebody else-per-
haps a city planning commission, a
traffic commission or a parking
authority. And highway planners
rarely talk to any of those other ex-
perts, whose areas of responsibility
they affect so fundamentally.
On Waterfronts
My city, New York, probably has
more waterfrontage than Venice. But
alas, if it has, the fact is one of the
best-kept secrets in town, for every
single foot of frontage in the five
boroughs of New York has now been
covered by monuments of that inimit-
able superplanner, Mr. Robert Moses.
Like his biblical namesake, Mr.
Moses has succeeded in making the
waters recede from our shores. Hap-
pily, however, at Jones Beach, about
an hour's drive from Manhattan (if
we can fight our way through the
traffic jams and into the parking lot),
we can check up to see if our ocean
is still there.
There are other ways of checking
up on whether our ocean is still there.
For example, consider Miami, where
the beaches are forever blocked by
superhighways and belts of junk. We
can always resort to sign language-
language that unmistakedly sings of
the waves and the sands and the
dunes .
On Land Speculation
I would like to digress for a mo-
ment and say something about the
forces that shape buildings-buildings
like the 2.4 million square feet that
is the Pan American monster. When
the site was obtained (it happened
to be a lease, but this makes little
difference), the land speculators in
Manhattan had driven the price of
land in this particular area up to
$300 per square foot. That means
than a 150,000 square foot site cost
$45 million, without anything what-
soever upon it!
When you have insane land prices
like that, however well-intentioned
you may be, you simply cannot afford
to build a small building with plenty

of open space around it. You have to
jam as much cubage onto your site as
you possibly can, or your per-square-
foot rentals will be completely out of
line with those in nearby buildings.
And you will be bankrupt even before
you begin.
In other words, the builders of the
Pan Am Building (and of similar
blobs elsewhere) could not possibly
afford to do what all of us would
like to see done. Indeed, they showed
remarkable restraint. Under New
York's new zoning ordinance, it
would have been possible to build
a 2.8-million-square-foot monster on
this site, instead of the 2.4-million-
square-foot beast that now stands
there. And when this zoning reso-
lution was passed in New York, the
real estate lobby screamed "Bolshe-
vism" and other equally endearing
terms-as, I am told, they tend to
do in other cities, as well.
On Tax Assessments
One of the accepted methods, long
favored by local, state and federal
governments, is to reward a slum
landlord who does nothing to improve
his property by keeping his taxes low;
and to punish him if he did decide
to fix up his slum property by hiking
his taxes sky-high.
And the tax assessor, of course, is
not the only lunatic in this particular
story. For example, the federal gov-
ernment rewards the man who builds
apartments that look like all other
apartments by giving him fast FHA
And the same federal government
will mercilessly punish the man who
wants to do something just a little
bit better by forcing his client, the
developer, to wait month after month
after month for approvals. All this,
while carrying charges mount sky-
high and while no income accrues to
the developer from his investment.
In the meantime, such under-
developed areas as West Berlin -
which was little more than a vast pile
of rubble when I saw it in May 1945
(Continued on Page 10)

The American City...
(Continued from Page 9)
-put our own country to shame.
Why? Because those in charge feel
that architects and builders should be
rewarded for doing a good job-re-
warded in terms of lower taxes and
lower interest rates instead of pun-

On Problems and Solutions
Quite obviously, no concrete ex-
amples of modern cities exist today
that solve the problems that all of us
Daniel Burnham once said: "Make
no little plans." When he said that,
I suspect that a lot of people -
possibly even Burnham himself -
thought, quite simply, that "little
plans" were a waste of time. I would
like to suggest that "little plans" are
much more than a waste of time.
I believe they are a positive menace.
Let me be specific. The most obvi-
ous, yet the single most important
fact about the world today is, of
course, that we now have three bil-
lion people on earth. We will have
six billion by the year 2000 A. D.-
that is 36 years from today.
What a staggering statistic this is
can be understood only if you recall
that it took mankind about one mil-
lion years to reach the first billion
of population (which was around
1870, I believe).
It took only another 60 years after
that to reach the two billion figure.
And it took only another 30 years
to reach the three billion mark.
A further statistic that is just as
staggering is that in 1870, when we
had only one billion souls on earth,
only about 30 percent of all Amer-
icans lived in towns and cities. Today,
about 75 percent of us live in urban
centers. Yet most of our thinking
about cities is based on 19th century
ideas. Most urban legislation-at least
prior to the recent Supreme Court
decision-is being done by rural
When an outstanding modern
architect is called in to prescribe some
remedy for our cities, he is likely to
base his prescription upon the Piazza
San Marco. Now the "Piazza" is a
beautiful outdoor museum,, but has
about as much to do with the prob-
lems of a six-billion-people world as
Hannibal's elephants have to do with

the exploration of outer space.
Now, we may-all of us-regret
that we are living in the 20th century
and are faced with all these stagger-
ing problems. Or we may feel that
there will be a nuclear war anyway,
and that will solve all our problems.
Indeed, one of the greatest minds
of this century, Le Corbusicr, intro-
duced an exhibition of city planning
in the early 1930's, with the warning
that the alternatives facing mankind

These are indeed the alternatives
today. And I am going to try to be
optimistic and suggest that, perhaps,
we will not have war and that, per-
haps again, we will have to solve our
problems here on earth in a more
civilized way. The question, then, is
On San Francisco
Let me take San Francisco as an
The Bay Region today contains
some three to four million people.
That same region is expected to con-
tain twice as many people by 1980-
only 16 years from now.
When this fantastic, impending
growth becomes the scale by which
you measure the problems of the city,
then you suddenly realize that the
architects and planners and politicians
who worry about this little building
or that, or about matters of esthetics
-whether we ought to have a little
more beauty or a little less-that
these people are not merely being
silly. They are dangerous, for they
divert our attention from what should
be our chief concern.
Let us now look at San Francisco
again, for it is a very interesting
case study in many respects. Let's
look at it not from the point of view
of the playboy esthete, but from the
point of view of someone who is,
quite simply, concerned with the
survival of the human race. From
that point of view, I think the Bay
Region begins to look like a very
different sort of problem-a problem
not of a little pedestrian mall here,
and a little setback there, and a nice
plaza somewhere else. When you look
at San Francisco in those realistic,
latter-20th century terms, then cer-
tain things become crystal clear:
First, the entire Bay Region is a

single city. Anyone who does not see
this may as well disqualify himself
from any serious discussion of our
urban design problems.
Second, this one Bay Region city
consists of perhaps a half dozen huge
buildings one is called Berkeley,
another Oakland, another San Fran-
cisco, still another Richmond, and
so on.
Third, each of these huge build-
ings must be considered as a single
organism, planned in a single, broad
sweep and related to the other things
of our giant city the buildings
known as Berkeley, Oakland, San
Francisco and so on.
Now what does this mean?
Let's take the building we call
San Francisco. Superficially, it looks
pretty good. It is a great, big, beau-
tiful, more-or-less white piece of
sculpture, made by God and only
slightly loused up by man-so far.
And this great big piece of white
sculpture, sitting in a nice, big pool,
is connected to the other buildings
in the regional city by some steel
strands we call bridges.
But when you look a bit more
closely at the building called San
Francisco, you suddenly realize that
it is being put together by children-
or, possibly, by lunatics.
The way this city-and just about
every other city today-is being put
together is best explained by carrying
the analogy of the single building a
step further. It is as if we built an
office building today by getting in
a bunch of interior decorators, letting
each of them do an office or two
for this tenant or that, and then pile
all these little, individualized offices
one atop the other. After that we
would call in an elevator expert and
let him run his shafts through the
pile of offices just about at will.
Only children and people under-
going therapy play with blocks like
that. The rest of us, needless to say,
concern ourselves with structure, with
mechanical and electrical services,
with mail chutes and telephone
switchboards and all transportation
arteries within a building. And, cer-
tainly, we also concern ourselves with
the shapes of our offices.
But no architect in his right mind
would assemble an office building-
or any other kind of building-from

Florida South Chapter
Honors Craftsman . .

Winner of the tenth annual Florida
South Chapter Craftsman of the Year
Award was actually two people: Peg
and Otto Holbein, Miami Batik arti-
sans. Peg is the artist who develops
design themes for decorators and arch-
itects, and Otto is the technician who
executes the designs in the ancient
batik, a wax-resist-dyeing technique.
The two have been working in the
medium since the late 1950's, when
they researched the ancient methods
and adapted them to modern vat
dyes. Their work has been used
throughout the country and in the
Caribbean, as wall hangings and as
laminated panels. The work which
won them the nomination as out-
standing craftsman was a series of
door panels in the Saul Eig home de-
signed by George Reed, AIA.

The revolutionary CELLON* process is proving to be the
most valuable development ever to come out of Koppers
Company, Inc.'s relentless research for better pressure-
treated wood preservatives. This impregnating treatment,
applicable to any wood or wood product, provides 100%
penetration of pentachlorophenol into every cell of the
wood. The preservative is deposited in non-leaching crys-
talline form, and the treated product emerges dry.
Among many improved qualities, this new treatment is
colorless, odorless, practically weightless and non-swelling.
Materials treated are paintable, unchanged in dimension
and free from raised grain.They retain the same strength,
weight and appearance as untreated wood.
The principal advantage, of course, is outstanding resist-
ance to decay and insect attack... consistently better than
woods treated with regular light-solvent pentachlorophenol
For more than a year Alger-Sullivan Company in Northwest
Florida has been CELLON treating long-leaf yellow pine and
other species for industrial, commercial and residential
uses. If your next plan calls for a combination of natural
wood beauty with long service life, even under risky humid-
ity and decay conditions, contact Alger-Sullivan Company,

Client: A young couple, Mr. and
Mrs. Saul Eig, who work together as
importers and often travel to Europe
and the Orient on business. They
have no children. Both enjoy outdoor
living, an orchid collection, entertain-
ing small groups, charcoal cooking,
and a cooling pool plunge. They en-
joy imported automobiles, which
made a closed garage necessary, and
have out-of-town guests for whom
they wished to provide privacy.
Site: A flat, wedge-shaped, small lot
on a bluff near Biscayne Bay, with
existing large clumps of ornamental
palms in addition to scattered royal
Solution: An exploded plan kept
all existing trees, provided an expan-
sion of living spaces for entertain-
ing, separated the owners and guests
for privacy, and created areas of dif-
fering character. Pavillion-like build-
ings, one room deep, open into the
screened cage which encloses all the
living areas. French doors allow the
interiors to open to the breeze and
merge with the outdoor living areas,
creating a feeling of closeness with
the site, left in natural vegetation. The
second-floor master suite offers tree-
house privacy and view, and opens
onto a roof deck with a tub tree
garden. Nearby neighbors are invisi-
ble through bamboo and palm.

The American City...
(Continued from Page 10)
odd-shaped blocks and forget, at the
same time, about wiring, plumbing,
air conditioning, elevators and other
ways of getting up to those offices.
Yet this is precisely what we are
doing in San Francisco and every-
where else. We are assembling our
cities as if we were playing with
blocks, without the slightest regard for
any overall system of services, for any
overall structure, or for any methods
of communication and transportation.
And after we have put together a
new pile of these blocks, we scream
for help because we have suddenly
discovered that this great, big, beau-
tiful building that we have made
has no structure to hold it up, no
air for its inhabitants to breathe, no
elevators or escalators or stairs or
corridors for its inhabitants to use
to get their "individualized" offices
or apartments. In short, it is just a
nice piece of sculpture, in the case
of San Francisco, or not a very nice

piece of sculpture-junk sculpture-
like Gary, Indiana.
Until we treat our cities like single
buildings in every detail-for this is
a perfectly valid analogy, all the way
down the line-we will simply add to
existing chaos every time we build
anything, be it an urban renewal
project, a freeway or a skyscraper.
Until we begin to grasp the scale
of the 20th and 21st century-as
Le Corbusicr did 35 years ago in his
then-radical plan for Algiers-we will
simply be turning a few thousand
little problems into a few hundred big
Again I say that "little plans" are a
very big menace. And that is why
it is a very, very serious matter when
we discover that highway planners
don't have verbal intercourse with
traffic planners, as is the case in New
York, and perhaps, even elsewhere.
