Overview

A visual narrative of this groundbreaking New Urbanism development in the Florida Panhandle. Designed by planning pioneers Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, Rosemary Beach is a decidedly different community. Renowned photographer Richard Sexton became an advocate of Rosemary Beach, finding it a positive example of how future communities can become better and more stimulating places. His admiration is palpable throughout this thoroughly descriptive and artful photo essay, which features a vicarious stroll through residential and civic buildings and public spaces, and details the prescribed house types that define the community. A secondary photo essay focuses on an intimate view of how residents live in Rosemary Beach. The final section provides a walking tour experience.

Editorial Reviews

California Bookwatch

Rosemary Beach is a designed community reflecting the European Colonial architecture of the West Indies, New Orleans and St. Augustine blended with city planning and architectural designs from around the world. It holds pocket parks, urban environments balanced by small open spaces, and a series of alleyways between major streets that keeps cars off the Rosemary Beach streetscape. Blend these objectives with a drive to incorporate a new urban standard of style that juxtaposes artistic architectural style with practical living and you have a guide that's packed with full-page color photos and discussions of just why the Rosemary Beach development is so remarkable. Any collection strong in architectural heritage will find this an important survey.
