New River Architecture Project and Docomomo US/Florida present: The Magic of Charles McKirahan

The Mai-Kai

3599 North Federal Highway
Oakland Park, FL
Image details

The way Frank Lloyd Wright left his stamp on Oak Park, Illinois, and the way Morris Lapidus shaped Miami Beach in his image, is the way Charles McKirahan shaped Greater Fort Lauderdale - in fact and in image. Like the former two, McKirahan was an iconoclast who created a style all his own, working within the modern architecture of the day as a point of departure. See the breadth and artistry of McKirahan’s Tropical American Modernism, from definitive ranch homes to waterfront apartment hotels to churches, office buildings and a modern village. Enter properties not usually open to the public too, on this four-hour bus tour with walking.
