Institute of Classical Architecture and Art Florida Chapter

AWARDS WINDSOR CO-FOUNDERS THE 2022 ADDISON MIZNER AWARD FOR PATRONAGE

The Hon. Hilary M. Weston and late husband Galen will be honored in April for their contributions to Classical and Traditional Architecture and Urbanism. The couple will receive the 2022 Addison Mizner Award for Patronage.

The Institute of Classical Architecture and Art Florida Chapter board members annually take note of the contributions of individuals, firms, and organizations by recognizing excellence in the following categories: World Accomplishment, Patronage, Pedagogy, and Service.

Recipients will be honored during a cocktail party on April 14. The following day the organization will present awards during a coveted dinner at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach.

Incorporated in 2006, the ICAA Florida Chapter was formed to promote and advance the classical tradition in contemporary architecture, planning and their allied arts and building crafts throughout the state of Florida.

In 2012, the group created the prestigious Addison Mizner Awards, named for the notable south Florida architect, to recognize new work in classical and traditional design, and to celebrate the achievement of the finest practitioners in Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture and Urbanism, as well as in Craftsmanship and the Allied Arts.

The Westons have long been passionate about art and architecture. The couple founded the New Urbanist community of Windsor in 1989, envisioning a forward-thinking community that would showcase timeless architecture and exceptional landscape design. Mrs. Weston’s hands-on approach helped push the boundaries of what was typically expected of a luxury residential development in Florida.

Under Windsor’s co-founders’ watchful eye, numerous homes in the community have garnered attention and acclaim including a South Village home designed by Moor Baker Architects that was recognized with an Addison Mizner award in 2020.

Tony Cragg Exhibits at The Gallery At Windsor

SCULPTURES AND WORKS ON PAPER CLOSES MAY 19

In February, Windsor Members and leading figures from the international art world were given the first view of a phenomenal exhibition of works by one of the world’s preeminent sculptors, Sir Tony Cragg. Major works curated specifically for The Gallery at Windsor were revealed during an exclusive weekend hosted by The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, creative director for The Gallery.

Tony Cragg: Sculptures and Works on Paper presents a collection that showcases the artist’s extraordinary mastery over a diverse range of materials including bronze, steel and glass sculptures, and works on paper, on view in the gallery as well as a large-scale fiberglass sculpture sited in the community’s gardens.

Cragg was on hand to take part in an hour-long “Artist in Conversation” event with the curator Dr. Jon Wood. The conversation was followed by a celebratory dinner hosted by Mrs. Weston on Windsor’s Beach Club veranda.

Mrs. Weston, who co-founded Windsor with her late husband Galen, said the entire Windsor community has wholeheartedly embraced Cragg’s exhibition, adding, “We were so delighted that Tony was able to travel to Vero Beach for the opening of this exciting exhibition.”

To Cragg, sculpture is an important way of activating curiosity about the world from a materialist point of view. Among the works shown in the Windsor gallery are some of his earlier pieces such as “Red Square,” which has a shape that appears to shift – a reminder that nothing in this world is static – as well as his latest works including “Processor,” a sculpture that explores the liquidity of glass to powerful effect.

Also on display are extraordinary works on paper that offer gallery visitors a peek into how Cragg’s imagination works. Drawing, he says, plays a vital role in his art because the idea for a sculpture often begins on the page, allowing his mind to move back and forth between two and three dimensions.

Cragg has captivated art lovers throughout the world with exhibits in top museums including London’s Tate Gallery, the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and the State Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg.

The British artist, born in Liverpool in 1949, has garnered much acclaim for his mesmerizing works and has been awarded a number of prestigious prizes including the Turner Prize at Tate, London, and the Praemium Imperiale Award in Tokyo. He has lived and worked in Wuppertal, Germany since 1977.

The Windsor exhibition, which runs through May 19, is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue including a foreword by The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, an essay by Jon Wood and an interview with the artist by Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Town Hall Concert Series

WINDSOR IS FILLED WITH THE SOUND OF MUSIC

Windsor’s iconic Town Hall stands ever present in the heart of the Village, a resplendent architectural masterpiece that serves its community well. This is where couples exchange vows, worshippers sing praises and audiences find themselves caught up in the rapturous beauty of a romantic piano concerto or a glorious aria.

Architectural and urban theorist Léon Krier designed the neoclassical building to serve as shelter and symbol to this unique New Urbanist Florida community.

The structure, which references the American vernacular in its design, rests on a podium with a simple rectangular plan. Thirty white columns support a steeply pitched roof that rises above the skyline of the Village. Multiple doors allow cross-breezes and natural light filters through its many arched windows. Its purity of form gives it a timeless quality.

Adjacent to a public square with serene water fountain, the Town Hall boasts a monumental scale despite its intimate feel. Opened in 1999, it is widely revered in architectural circles even today, with visiting students excited to study the impressive building.

With its airy, voluminous interior and exceptional acoustics, the Town Hall functions as a visually stunning performing arts venue for a variety of events each season. Cultural leaders come to discuss the economy and world affairs. World-class musicians look forward to performing here.

In February, a Windsor audience enjoyed Vero Beach Opera’s presentation of “Broadway Meets Opera.” The program was filled with Andrew Lloyd Webber showstoppers and grand opera favorites sung by six talented performers.

Following the show, attendees mingled on the portico with champagne and hors d’oeuvres.

During high season in March at the Town Hall, Windsor Members settled in for a rousing performance by The Baker’s Dozen of Yale University – one of the nation’s oldest and finest a cappella groups. Founded in 1947, the ensemble is comprised of a dozen-odd male undergraduates from all over the country. The energetic group was thrilled to have the opportunity to perform at such an impactful and intimate venue where they wowed the audience with a broad repertoire of songs, ranging from traditional ballads to jazz, rock and contemporary hits.

Each season, an ongoing roster of musical events reminds Members of what a phenomenal venue the Town Hall is for appreciating the many musical talents Windsor draws.

A Fresh New Look AT WINDSOR’S BEACH CLUB

Sand, sea and serenity. An extensive renovation of Windsor’s Beach Club incorporates these elements to fashion a dreamy new space that fully embraces its easy-going coastal setting without giving up its trademark elegance and sophistication.

Windsor’s co-founder, The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, collaborated with renowned interior designer Alessandra Branca to refresh and rejuvenate the impressive oceanfront facility that boasts a welcoming reception area and bar, a stylish restaurant, a dining veranda overlooking the Atlantic shoreline, a 25-meter pool, a poolside grille and open-air bar.

The spacious Beach Club is one of Windsor’s most popular venues for dining, memorable wedding receptions and other special occasions.

A February Town & Country magazine article penned by James Reginato captures some of the highlights of the redesign of the Anglo-Caribbean style Beach Club, which was originally designed by architect Jaquelin Robertson.

During the renovation, Branca showed herself to be adept at creating a tranquil yet polished environment using sky blue, coral and white. Although the overall look is muted, she incorporated pops of color and moments of whimsy. The Chicago-based designer took the already sophisticated Club to a new level by mixing French pieces with midcentury Italian and Danish furnishings, and then adding in wicker, brass and bronze. Darkening the walls of the bar and installing a plush leather banquette made the space “a little groovier,” Branca says.

Giving the Club a jolt of energy is a collection of contemporary artworks by Beatriz Milhazes, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Damien Hirst and Christopher Le Brun. An unexpected twist is the 2021 video installation by American multimedia artist Allison Janae Hamilton, whose work often examines the natural environment.

Branca describes working with Mrs. Weston on the renovation project as “a real collaboration.”

The result of that collaboration is a light, airy and modern Beach Club that feels intimate without being aloof. The reconceptualized space subtly encourages guest interaction in the fashionable reception room and bar on the ground floor. Windsor Members can enjoy pre- and post-dinner cocktails here or outside on the spacious loggia, an ideal spot for small- to medium-sized gatherings.

The new and distinctive Veranda dining experience offers world-class service, upscale comfort and an elevated coastal Italian cuisine. At the more casual Poolside Grille, Members snack on light fare prepared with the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. In the Cabana

Bar, diners can enjoy breathtaking pool-to-ocean views, specialty cocktails and a small plates menu designed by Executive Chef Justin Schreiber.

Although each space tells a distinct story, the updated Beach Club as a whole achieves its vision to be an engaging, comfortable and convivial gathering spot for Windsor.
