Free Event to Launch Book Celebrating Architecture of Coral Gables

November 7, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


The Villagers support is helping launch a new book celebrating the architecture of Coral Gables. A part of the Coffee Table Journeys Collection, by author-illustrator José Gelabert-Navi, Coral Gables, will be unveiled at a reception and book signing event at the Coral Gables Museum. The free event is open to the public and the author will give a short presentation followed by the book signing. Books will be available for sale.

A practicing architect with the firm Perkins + Will, Gelabert-Navia is a professor and former Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Miami. His teaching focus has been in the areas of architectural design and the related history of colonialism and globalization.

“The Villagers are delighted to be instrumental in bringing this book to the public,” said Susan Medina, Past President of The Villagers. “Professor Gelabert-Navia’s work will help immortalize and celebrate the incredible accomplishments of George Merrick’s architectural team who began building Coral Gables 100 years ago.”

Since 1966, The Villagers have awarded more than 230 grants to more than 80 organizations and awarded 200+ university scholarships to advance historic preservation. Through educating, advocating, fundraising, restoration, and documentation The Villagers work to preserve the cultural and architectural heritage of historic sites and neighborhoods in Miami-Dade County.
