The Alfred Browning Parker Collection contains the papers and drawings of Alfred Browning Parker. Establishing his practice in the 1940s, Parker quickly gained fame for his visionary architecture and craftsmanship. Renowned for his environmentally friendly designs in the Modernist style, he has designed and built over 6,400 projects throughout his lifetime and won numerous awards. House Beautiful, the primary architecture magazine during the 1950s and 60s, named four of Parker's residences as "Pace Setter" houses, more than any other architect. In 1959 Frank Lloyd Wright recommended Parker as an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Fellow. An AIA Fellowship recognizes architects who have made a significant contribution to both architecture and the greater society, achieving a standard of excellence in architecture at both a local and national level. Parker was the only architect Wright recommended for the Fellowship. The Parker Collection is part of the Architecture Archives at the University of Florida.
