A recent press release landed on my desk and the title caught my eye. It
was touting the desirability of living in a new development in central
Florida called "Williamsburg." The title of the article was "Williamsburg:
The Florida You've Always Dreamed Of." Really?
It's not the Florida I've always dreamed of. But, from the looks of things
here in Florida's capital city, it's the Florida some developers, their clients
and their architects have dreamed of. Virtually the entire commercial com-
munity of northeast Tallahassee has been built up with "Runs," "Greens,"
"Traces" and "Trails" that are populated with the doggonedest conglomera-
tion of pseudo-Georgian buildings that I've ever had the misfortune to cast
my eyes on. It's clear to me that "Colonial," that meaningless catchall
phrase, is the wave of the future. But, what's happened to these would-be
Georgian buildings is enough to make Batty Langley turn over in his
grave. Never before have I been witness to such a confusion of detail. Can
you imagine a two-story building with a hip roof that is so steep the
shingles slide off? ... an out-of-scale classical portico defining a facade
fenestrated with a mix of oriole, Palladian and double-hung sash windows,
some filled with Victorian stained glass and wrought iron grilles and
railings, a la New Orleans.
I wonder what has happened to someone's sense of history. Why have so
many architects or developers or both resorted to bad copyism when they
could be doing good new design. . with origins in the vernacular, not
East Coast Georgian?
This year's design jury selected seven projects, each of which
exemplifies what I'm talking about. Each project shouts that it was
designed for Florida, its life, its climate, its terrain. Each project says
Florida in its own unique way. None looks transplanted, or out
of place, or alien to the environment. Each is at peace with its surround-
ings. Each is a part of its surroundings. Each epitomizes the Florida I've
always dreamed of. DG

Chapter 481 after Sunset architecture and interior design
J. Michael Huey

during the 1988 Legislative
Session, the legislature com-
pleted its "sunset review" of the
architects' practice act and si-
multaneoulsy considered the
issue of licensure of interior de-
signers. The end result was a
rewrite of Chapter 481, Part I,
providing for the licensure of
architects and interior design-
ers in Florida. Below, I have at-
tempted to briefly outline the
pertinent portions of the new
law which will take effect Octo-
ber 1, 1988.

Practice Act v. Title Act
The new law continues licen-
sure of architects under regula-
tory statutes generally referred
to as a "practice act," whereby
only architects are allowed to
engage in the practice of archi-
tecture. Interior designers will
be licensed to use the titles "in-
terior designer" or "registered
interior designer" only. This reg-
ulatory scheme, known as a "title
act," does not preclude others
from offering interior design
services, only from using these
specific titles.

Definitions of Architecture and
Interior Design
The definition of architecture
remained unchanged by the leg-
islature. Interior design was
defined as design services which
do not necessarily require perfor-
mance by an architect, including
consultations, studies, drawings,
and specifications in connection
with reflected ceiling plans, space
utilization, furnishings, or the
fabrication of nonstructural ele-
ments within and surrounding
interior spaces of buildings; but
specifically excluding mechani-
cal and electrical systems, ex-
cept for specification of fixtures
and their location within interior

Board of Architecture and
Interior Design
The existing Board of Archi-
tecture was expanded from sev-
en to nine members. The two
members will be registered in-
terior designers, who have been
offering interior design services
for at least five years.

Education and Experience
Requirements for Examination
Applicants desiring to take
the architectural licensure ex-
amination must be either gradu-
ates of a school or college of ar-
chitecture accredited by NAAB
or graduates of a school or college
of architecture, the architectural
curriculum of which has been ap-
proved by the Board. Addition-
ally, beginning October 1, 1989,
applicants must have completed
one year of internship prior to
the examination.
Interior design examination
applicants must meet one of sev-
eral education and experience
combinations under the new law,
as follows:
(a) graduate from a five-year
interior design program plus one
year of experience;
(b) graduate from a four-year
program plus two years of ex-
(c) completion of three years
in interior design education plus
three years experience;
(d) graduate from a two-year
interior design program plus four
years experience.
All education of interior de-
signers must be obtained in a
program accredited by FIDER
or otherwise approved by the

Architects may be licensed
after passage of the prescribed
examination and compliance with
experience requirements or by
endorsement. Licensure by en-
dorsement was broadened to al-
low persons who held an NCARB
certificate prior to July 1, 1984,

who did not hold a five-year de-
gree to be licensed.

of such license is substantially

tiles weighing up to 10 times as
much. The underlying strength of
Gerard tiles is rugged 26 gauge
galvanized steel, pre-painted and
reinforced for durability by a patented
profile design. A deep coating of
polymer acrylic resin bonds earthstone
granules to the steel, and finally a
pure acrylic overglaze is applied prior
to kiln curing. The process creates an
aesthetically pleasing, weatherproof,
non-combustible roof tile that
outperforms the alternatives.
Gerard tiles are available in a
spectrum of twelve colors including
six mediterranean accent shades
designed to compliment architectural
styles, and provide the versatility of
making structures at one with their
environment or setting them apart
from the crowd. The lightweight
durability of steel combined with the
subtle elegance of colored stone
granules, provides a unique blend of
permanence and beauty in a roofing
system that has surpassed thorough

designer desiring to be "grand-
fathered" under the new law
without examination must apply
for licensure within one year
after the effective date of the law.
Furthermore, there are specific
prior practice requirements
which individuals must meet in
order to be licensed without ex-
amination. These practice re-
quirements, basically, require
that applicants have passed the
NCIDQ examination and have
six years of interior design ex-
perience. There is an exception
for students currently enrolled
in a Florida community college
two-year interior design pro-
gram, provided they graduate
from the program by October

Practice Requirements
Architects and interior design-
ers are required to include their
licensure certificate numbers in
all advertising mediums, includ-

ing telephone directories, used
by them.
Registered interior designers
are required to have a seal, pre-
scribed by the Board, and to
seal all documents being filed
for public record. Interior de-
signers must participate in not
less than twenty hours per year
of continuing education in order
to maintain their license. Fur-
thermore, interior design docu-
ments must contain a statement
that the document is not an ar-
chitectural or engineering study,
drawing, specification or design
and is not to be used for construc-
tion of any load-bearing columns,
load-bearing framing or walls of
structures, or issuance of any
building permit.
Finally, interior designers are
allowed to offer services to their
clients on the basis of a fee, per-
centage or markup. However,
they have the responsibility of
fully disclosing to the client the

manner in which all compensa-
tion is to be paid. Unless the cli-
ent knows and agrees, the inter-
ior designer may not accept any
form of compensation from a
supplier of goods and services.

Corporate and Partnership
Corporate and partnership
practice for architects remained
unchanged by the legislature.
Similar provisions to the exist-
ing corporate and partnership
provisions were included for in-
terior designers.

The current exemption for en-
gineers providing "incidental
architectural services" was con-
tinued. Registered architects
are allowed to perform any inter-
ior design service and allowed to
use the titles "interior designer"
or "registered interior designer."

Interior decorators are allowed
to continue to refer to themselves
under this term and are allowed
to continue to provide their ser-
vices. Any other person is al-
lowed to render interior design
services as long as the person
does not hold himself or herself
out to the public as a "interior
designer" or "registered inter-
ior designer."
The above summary is not in-
tended to be an exhaustive re-
view of the new practice act. It
is merely intended to highlight
the pertinent provisions, par-
ticularly, with regard to the in-
clusion of interior designers in
the act. You are urged to obtain
copies of this law so that you may
fully understand this novel com-
bined regulatory system.

The AmericastStory: Lighter, More Durable.

The best bathtubs used to be made of
cast iron. Now there's something better.
AmericastT, the both material that beats
cast iron time after time.
Americast is manufactured exclusively
by American Standard through a patented
process that bonds a porcelain enameled
surface, enameling grade metal and the
structural composite.
Americast makes bathtubs that are
half the weight of cast iron tubs, yet stronger
and even more durable. They're quieter
when showering and more comfortable
when bathing, because Americast is lower
in noise transmission and higher in heat
The combination of
light weight, strength and

Grade Metli

comfort make Americast the perfect choice
for American Standard's Princeton'M tub.

Arecibo, Puerto Rico

Citibank, Mini Branch

Sierra Cardona Ferrer
San Juan, Puerto Rico

Citibank N.A.

General Contractor
Edificadora Inc.

The management of Citibank
wanted to explore the idea of
developing a mini branch in
Puerto Rico as a substitute for
their traditional larger branch
banks. Such an operation in 900
square feet would allow for a
larger geographical share of the
market with a smaller compara-
tive facilities investment. The
first of such prototypes, this
building was constructed in a
medium-sized shopping center.
The design goal was to conceive
an image that could compete
with the fast food stands that
surround the site and still be
read as a bank despite the small
scale. The solution was con-
ceived as a billboard building
carved out of a small cube. A
horizontally articulated skin
wraps two brightly lit, colorful
diagonals that serve as the
billboard to catch the eye from
every direction. The plan con-
centrates all the enclosed
spaces to one side. Both axes
were stressed by the placement
of phone booths, covered drive,
floor and ceiling patterns
and the placement of fixed

Jury: "This small project with
a small budget has skillfully
used it sign to make it a big
project. It is well-detailed park-
ing lot "art."

School Board of
Hernando County
General Contractor
Edwards Construction and

The design of an elementary
school for 934 students and the
client's immediate need to ac-
commodate population growth
mandated development of a
plan which could provide
maximum physical space on an
accelerated schedule within the
available budget. The site is
rural, relatively remote and
sparsely vegetated. The build-
ing consists of nine independent
structures which are arranged
to form a central, landscaped
mall. A high walkway canopy is
the unifying element forming
the mall perimeter and serving
as the central circulation spine.
The mall's free space forms a
communal focus and function-
ally, the mall is an outside class-
room and a gathering spot for
activities. An educational
"shopping center" theme incor-
porates administrative, media
and dining facilities as "anchor
stores" and the balance of the
mall storefront is dedicated to
art, music, computer science
and resource rooms. Classroom
"neighborhoods" are layered
behind this system by age

Jury: "This project has a life of
its own which is well expressed
in the straightforward plan.
The framework that this project
sets up for school functions is
very good. The bu ilding is very
flexible, in the public sense.
This building has such a strong
sense ofitselfthat one must be
aware of what great care has
gone into understanding the
budget constraints." Photos by George Cott

Largo City Hall Alterations and Additions Largo, Florida

Ranon & Partners, Inc.
Tampa, Florida

Landscape Architect
Thomas G. Shepard &

City of Largo

General Contractor
Forbes Construction Co.

The revisions and additions
to an existing government com-
plex in Largo called for a design
which would unify a series of
disjointed existing structures in
a manner compatible with the
village scale of the community.
The architects' new building in-
fills the available space be-
tween existing structures and
serves as a physical linkage for
all the buildings. Internally, the
spaces are conceived as forming
one building. Externally, the
complex is perceived as a "gov-
ernmental shopping center."
The public approach is direct
from the exterior to each de-
partment through individual
"storefronts." Visual and func-
tional unity is achieved through
utilization of a new perimeter
covered walkway system which
provides a new facade and spa-
tial sequence for the entire com-
plex. Pedestrian scale is em-
phasized throughout.

Jury: "The architect is to be
commended for utilizing what
already existed and creating a
unified whole. This project has
achieved the maximum effect
u-ih the minimum means."

The 3,000-year-old Egyptian
artifacts required extensive
humidity control, maximum
security and museum lighting.
The design was a "1986 stylized"
version of the temples of an-
cient Egypt. Extensive use of
color, light, architectural props
and a careful division of space
were used to create the unclut-
tered temples and courtyards
which depicted the pageant of
ancient Egyptian life. When
disassembled, the props were
comprised of over 200 indi-
vidually coded and numbered

amazing architectural pres-

that it is temporary, it has a
very special sense of place

and the space it sits in was so

axial configuration was estab-
lished for the house. Because of
its coastal site, the house is
raised to the required flood ele-

the site is a glass block circula-

level to the uppermost living

Peter Eisenman, FAIA

Peter Eisenman, FAIA, a
principal in the firm of Eisen-
man Robertson Architects in
New York, was a member of the
1988 FA/AIA Unbuilt Design
Awards Jury. He was also Key-
note Speaker at the Sarasota
Design Conference held at the
Colony Beach Resort in July. Be-
tween sessions at the Confer-
ence, Tampa Tribune Architec-
ture Critic Rened Garrison talked
with Eisenman about Florida
architecture and the profession
as a whole.
"I've been in Florida a number
of times and found there are ex-
traordinary bits of what I con-
sider indigenous architecture.
You have to go into strange,
backwoods places like outside
of Gainesville. But I also loved
Anna Maria Island because it
wasn't gentrified. It was the way
people use to build in Florida.
"What I find difficult about all
development whether it is in
New York or Florida is that
people feel they need to design
something 'new.' Of course, that
will always become the immedi-
ate 'old.' I really miss the quality

of place that these developments
are lacking. If you go to a shop-
ping mall in Sarasota, it's the
same as Columbus, Ohio. What
we're seeing is generic architec-
ture. I mean, look at this room
(at the Colony). It's pretty ge-
neric. I don't see much architec-
ture or much concern for it. This
place is riddled with roads and
has very little privacy.
"It's symptomatic of our in-
sensitivity to our natural envi-
ronment and to the man-made
environment. I don't think it has
anything to do with architects
being good or bad or insensitive.
I just think that the pressures
of development, of dollars and
cents, are overwhelming. The
clients say, 'This is the way we
want to build it because it's go-
ing to be cheap.' And we archi-
tects wind up decorating rather
ordinary products. Unless you
get a very unusual client. It's cli-
ents who make good architecture.
Eisenman also insists that it has
become increasingly difficult for
architects to be taken seriously.
"I think the architectural pro-
fession has a real problem and it's

because we have a weak lobby. I
mean, look at the salaries. A stu-
dent comes out of Harvard, Yale
or Princeton forget Gainesville,
which by the way, I think is one
of the best schools of architecture
in the country with a master's
degree and makes, perhaps,
$18,000 or $19,000 a year. The
equivalent student coming out
of law school or business school
makes a minimum of $40,000 or
$50,000 a year. Tb make matters
worse, architects are constantly
undercutting one another for
fees. I guess what I'm saying is,
why should anyone who is mak-
ing $50,000 a year when they're
24 years old, take somebody se-
riously who is willing to work for
$19,000 a year? The answer is,
they don't. They patently don't.
I don't think people take you seri-
ously until it costs them money."
In addition, Eisenman expressed
concern over Florida's waterfront
"I think the waterfront is fab-
ulous, but what worries me is
gentrification. There used to
be a toughness to, say, the Flor-
ida Keys and Miami in the early

1940's. There was a sense of
place. But that toughness is gone.
The way we treat the landscape -
we have to beautify things. We
can't leave the palmettos alone.
We've got to have manicured
lawns and clipped trees. There's
no sense of wildness or of the un-
tamed. This is what people are
longing for. My sense is that peo-
ple want a place that's not gus-
sied up. I find it very sad when
I judge a regional AIA compe-
tition and see what is going on
along the waterfronts in this
"Personally, there's nothing
I like better than standing out
on the street in New York City's
heat. It's much better than be-
ing here in this generic, air-con-
ditioned room. I love sitting at a
football game when it's pouring
rain. I used to love it when the

How to protect against pirating of designs

in houses and other buildings
Sybil Meloy

When an out-of-state archi-
tect showed a Florida couple
his elaborate designs for a plush
$1 million home, the couple im-
mediately fell in love with the
plans. They hired a local archi-
tect and builder to adapt the
plans to local codes and build the
magnificent home on their water-
front lot.
But a year later the same house
turned up a mile away. The local
architect had used the original
architect's plans without permis-
sion. The original builder became
infuriated when he learned of the
duplicate house and threatened
to sue the builder who copied the
Greater Protection Sought
Architects, builders and other
people involved in the creative
end of the real estate industry
across the country now are be-
ginning to seek greater protec-
tion for their designs. But many
of them are not aware that exist-
ing intellectual property laws -
patents, trademarks, copyright
and trade secret laws can pro-
tect against copying their ideas
and can severely punish some-
one who steals them.
In one case, an infringer was
ordered to pay lost profits for
each house built. Remedies also
include injunctions, destruction
of copied work, attorney fees
and criminal sanctions, includ-
ing fines and jail.
Design Expression Protected
Copyright law provides re-
course against someone who co-
pies an architect's drawings and
uses them in construction of a
structure. But the law may not
prevent someone from building
the identical house by copying
from the structure itself rather
than drawings. The American
Institute of Architects is lobby-
ing Congress to prevent copying
of structures.
Copyright owners are given
the exclusive right to reproduce

copyrighted work, to prepare
derivative works and to display
the work publicly. Owners also
may authorize others to repro-
duce the work.
Ideas can't be copyrighted,
only the form of the idea or how
it is expressed. The architecture
itself is often a synthesis of ideas
taken from various sources and
generally cannot be copyrighted.
But there are exceptions.
Who Can Copyright What?
Under the Copyright Act of
1976, an "original work of author-
ship" has copyright protection
from the moment it is fixed in a
tangible form and should carry
a copyright notice. "Original"
means it cannot be a copy of an-
other copyrighted work, but the
final products may be similar. It
is advisable to register the copy-
right before an infringement
takes place because registration
is a prerequisite to sue and to
the recovery of damages and at-
torney fees.
An architect can normally
copyright any type of original
plan, including drawings, blue-
prints, sketches, designs, speci-
fications, electrical and mechan-
ical drawings and specifications,
elevations and graphics. Distinc-
tive, non-functional design fea-
tures of models also can be copy-
righted, but not functional fea-
tures, such as windows and doors.
An independent architect hired
by a builder, developer or owner
to prepare drawings of a build-
ing normally retains title to his
plans and can copyright them.
When the architect turns the
plans over to his client, he nor-
mally only gives the client the
right to use the plans for one
A developer or builder, for ex-
ample, could acquire title to the
plans and copyright them if the
architect assigns the title to them
or if the architect is an employee
of the developer or builder.

Where to Copyright
Copyrights are registered at
the Copyright Office of the Li-
brary of Congress, Washington,
D.C. 20559. Copyright costs are
generally minimal.

Using A Copyright Notice
A developer who acquires a
copyright must place the copy-
right notice on all drawings or
other media that he copyrighted.
The notice should include the
copyright symbol, followed by
the year and the owner's name,
such as "(c) 1988 Joe Builder,
Inc." For works first published
in 1988 by the copyright owner,
an optional element to follow
would be "All rights reserved."
The copyright notice should
be placed on any models of the
project before they are open to
the public, to protect design ele-
ments. A model should be copy-
righted separately from plans be-
cause this may provide recourse
as to non-functional features if
someone copies the structure
from the model.
The builder might also consider
obtaining a design patent for the
model, which covers ornamental
or design features of manufac-
tured items, such as for a monu-
ment, a grandstand or water
If a developer does not ini-
tially include a copyright notice
on printed drawings or on his
model, he can still place a copy-
right notice on all undistributed
copies and on the model. If it is
within five years of original pub-
lication, he can validly register
the work with the Copyright Of-
fice. Copyright protection gen-
erally lasts for the life of the
owner plus 50 years.

Other Means of Protection
Besides copyright, other ways
of protecting against infringe-
ment include trademarks, pa-
tents and trade secret protection.

Trademarks (or service marks)
are words, symbols or devices
used to identify origin. A name
such as Arvida can be a trade-
mark. Symbols and designs also
serve as trademarks, such as
the characteristic Fotomat kiosk
or a building with McDonald's
golden arches.
Trademark and unfair compe-
tition laws have been used to
protect against the copying of a
restaurant's interior floor plan,
interior design and even waitress
Functional patents can cover
any process, machine, article of
manufacture or composition of
matter that is useful, new and
not obvious, such as Thermopane
glass, a method of pouring con-
crete, a security system and a
roof structure.
Trade secret protection could
cover information that was not
easily discoverable, such as a spe-
cial method of mixing concrete.

6 The DPIC education
program has caused us to do
continuing education, at the
most basic contract level,
that we probably wouldn't
have gotten around to doing
as a whole group. There
may have been a person here
or there that would have
been enthusiastic about it,
but their premium credit
program requires all part-
ners and technical staff to
participate and take the
exams. So, without the pro-
gram, I think it would have
been unlikely we would have
gotten 100% participation.
But because it is required,
we do get it. In fact, we are
considering making the
DPIC tests, including read-
ing the book, a requirement
for all staff.
I can't imagine any-
body not participating in
the educational program,
because of the cost savings
aspect of it. I mean, let
alone the fact that it can
help your practice.
I think we've saved on
the order of $30,000 over
two or three years. We've
found DPIC's premiums,
with and without the educa-
tion program, to be gener-
ally competitive, so we do
regard it as a savings.
You might find another
carrier that could provide
the same insurance for that
net amount. But I think
DPIC has been conscien-
tious, in not saying, 'OK,
we'll lower our price and
forget about the educational
program' and I think that
speaks well for them. 99

Florida's growth management and comprehensive

planning system
Architects need to learn how the system works
by Sarah A. Dowlen, AIA Associate

T he term "growth manage-
ment" is not new to most Flor-
idians, especially to those indi-
viduals in the planning and de-
sign professions. Articles appear
regularly in the state's newspa-
pers and magazines illuminating
the problems associated with our
state's staggering growth. For
over a decade, numerous state
conferences, workshops and
seminars have focused on the
need for growth management
and the complicated issues asso-
ciated with its implementation.
In short, the issues have been
talked, fussed, and discussed
in an earnest attempt to make
growth management a clear is-
sue. For many however, growth
management, in 1984, '85, '86,
and'87, became something other
than a hot topic for debate. With
the passage of many new and
amended pieces of legislation,
growth management became a
"statewide system" of compli-
cated products directed by pro-
cesses, procedures, guidelines
and "do's and don'ts" In short,
public and private sector inter-
ests now had "TO DO" as well as
To those public sector profes-
sionals involved in the design of
the State's system to manage
growth, many of the processes
and products of the system are
relatively well understood. How-
ever, to those who were not a
part of the original development,
the growth management and
comprehensive planning system
is the equivalent of a complicated
and inaccessible "code."
Most individuals involved in
development in Florida are af-
fected by the new growth man-
agement and comprehensive
planning system, but perhaps
none more so than professional
planners, architects and lawyers.
Mr. Daniel W O'Connell, former

Executive Director of the Growth
Management Advisory Commit-
tee, stated in a phone interview
in 1987 that, "Architects and ar-
chitectural theory, like that of
contextualism, were key factors
in the development of the new
planning network, and the prac-
tice of architecture in Florida is
legally, socially and politically
connected to the design implica-
tions of that network. The purist
approach of seeing a building as
a single entity, out of context
with its environment, will no
longer satisfy many of the strin-
gent requirements found in the
Local Government Comprehen-
sive Plans. Architecture in Flor-
ida is now a complicated by-prod-
uct of an equally complicated
strategic planning network."
It is an understatement to say
that the growth management
planning laws and products deal
strenuously with the issue of de-
velopment in Florida. If an indi-
vidual is of the opinion that archi-
tects design and build structures
and developments out of context
with their surrounding social,
political and ecological environ-
ment, then it would probably
make sense to them that archi-
tects would be of little use to the
broad brush of growth manage-
ment in Florida. However, many
architects support the opinions
that they create environments
which consume social, political
and ecological issues, and that
public attitude is affected by the
environments that they create.
If the public sees architectural
projects that are sensitive to the
crisis of growth management in
Florida, then the public's atti-
tude will be positively influenced
toward more and better support
of the State's growth manage-
ment movement.
Problems, however, stand in
the way of most architects and

their ability to make meaning-
ful contributions. Problems in-
clude a lack of knowledge of how
the growth management and
comprehensive planning sys-
tem functions, and of the spe-
cific parts of the system that
are particularly significant to
One of the major keys to growth
management is to create a public/
private partnership. If meaning-
ful and successful solutions to
the built environment dilemma
housed in Florida's growth man-
agement issues are to be devel-
oped, they will result from this
partnership. Florida's ability to
avoid an impending built environ-
ment and infrastructure crisis,
brought on by the onslaught of
growth, relies not only on the
ability of local, regional and state
levels of government to imple-
ment a "strategic vision" for
Florida, but also on the ability
of both the public and private
sector to communicate success-
fully about what that "strategic
vision" is. If the public/private
venture is to be a successful one,
the public and private sector
must be able to communicate
using the same vocabulary.
In an effort to bring the archi-
tectural community further into
this dialogue, a comprehensive
growth management reference
tool has been developed. The long
version of the title is, A Sum-
mary of Key Portions of Florida's
Growth Management and Com-
prehensive Planning System:
Phase One in the Development
of a Growth Management Source-
book for Florida's Architectural
Community. However, it is us-
ually referred to as The Sum-
mary Phase One. The overall
purpose of this reference tool is
to provide a basic foundation of
information to architects in Flor-
ida that will allow them to be

knowledgeable about the funda-
mentals of Florida's growth
management and comprehen-
sive planning system. Knowl-
edge of those portions of the sys-
tem that relate to the architec-
tural profession in Florida, the
establishment of effective and
meaningful dialogues between
everyone involved in growth
management, and aid for archi-
tects in developing future, more
expert analysis.
To accomplish the overall pur-
pose, four types of information
were included in the publication:
1. The most basic is an orga-
nizational chart which illustrates
Florida's growth management
and comprehensive planning sys-
tem, and accurately reflects the
status of the system prior to the
1987 Legislative Session.
2. Two charts were developed
to serve as guides to The Sum-
mary-Phase One. The first chart,
called the "Information Gather-
ing Chart," tells the reader what
to focus on depending upon their
information need (i.e. state, re-
gional and local plans). The other
chart, called the "Architectural
Topics Chart," directs the reader
to those portions of The Sum-
mary Phase One that relate to
certain architectural planning,
design and marketing issues (i.e.
historic preservation, rehabili-
tation and reuse). The "Archi-
tectural Topics Chart" identifies
those parts of the growth man-
agement system that contain ar-
chitecturally related topics.
3. The core of the report is
a summary of the laws, plans,
rules, guidelines and procedures
that make up Florida's growth
management and comprehensive
planning system. The overview
identifies and explains what,
when, where, why, and how Flor-
ida's growth management and
comprehensive planning sys-

FLORIDA ARCHITECT September/October 1988

tern functions. The discussion in-
cludes the identification and de-
scription of key portions of the
growth management system and
describes the interrelationships
of the system's parts. It also dis-
cusses the nuances of the laws,
and the state, regional, and local
plans of the system, and identi-
fies areas that are of importance
to the architectural profession.
4. To further support the de-
scriptive summary mentioned
in item three, The Summary -
Phase One goes a step further
and identifies citations taken
from the growth management
and comprehensive planning
system's laws, rules, plans, and
procedures, that contain archi-
tectural subject matter in the
form of infrastructure, facility,
planning, design and develop-
ment issues. The citations are
supported with a page number
reference that identifies the lo-
cation of the citation in the law,
plan, rule, procedure or guide-
line being reviewed.
It is unlikely that the growth
management movement in Flor-
ida will go away. Even less likely
is the reality that the planning
processes and products that
make up this system will van-
ish. Florida has begun to feel
the crunch of growth and the
beginnings of deteriorated in-
frastructure and public facili-
ties. This is not to say that the
system designed to manage
these issues is perfect. It is not.
But the philosophies that drove
its development are respectful
of the natural and man-made en-
vironment that make this state
an enjoyable place to live. A per-
sonal opinion is that we have only
begun to see the "tip of the ice-
berg" and those who benefit will
be individuals who are knowl-
edgeable about the system and
can provide positive input to the
