Hey everyone! Travis here with some Tampa Bay entertainment from the History Center. On Saturday, August 29 at 10:30am, the Tampa Bay History Center and the Tampa Bay Chapter of the American Institute of Architects will host Back to the Future: A Comparison of Sustainable Design Practices Then and Now, featuring the Tampa Bay Hotel and the Tampa Bay History Center.
Back to the Future will compare the design of the Plant Hotel, constructed in 1891, with the design of the Tampa Bay History Center, completed in 2008, focusing on the “green” building techniques each structure employed to withstand Tampa’s subtropical climate.
Tampa Bay History Center’s Saunders Foundation Curator of History, Rodney Kite-Powell and several local architects will present information on the history of the Plant Hotel, historic preservation and the development of the new History Center, which is in the process of becoming a LEED-certified building.
And, this is some Tampa Bay entertainment at a good price. Tickets are $12 and include admission to the History Center, which is a GREAT venue! Plus, members of the H.B. Plant Museum and the History Center are free.
Head over to www.tampabayhistorycenter.org or call 813.228.0097 if you need more info, but I hope to see you out there!
Until then, keep checking back for more great things to do in Tampa Bay!
