The local branch of AIA Orlando, the American Institute of Architects, has released a first run of a book on local architecture, the Architectural Guide to Central Florida.

The new book gives a comprehensive look at the region’s “outstanding buildings” that span the last century-and-a-half. The guidebook looks at the works of architects who have shaped our communities, including James Gamble Rogers II, Gene Leedy, and Murry S. King.

Buildings featured in the collection include the Polytechnic University by Santiago Calatrava, buildings at Walt Disney World, and nearly 300 more.

Each building that is highlighted in the guidebook includes an address and a map, in order to facilitate self-guided architectural tours.

The release of the book coincides with the upcoming AIA Conference on Architecture, being held in Orlando, April 27-29. Click HERE for more information on the conference.

The books are available for purchase for $35 + tax in the AIA offices at 801 N. Magnolia Avenue [GMap], between the hours of 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday to Friday. However, the team will be out of the office until May 2 as they prepare for the aforementioned conference. If you would like to arrange for one to be shipped to your home, contact Jessicka Deweese for more information, at [email protected].
