The Seaside Prize - 2010 Ceremony Weekend - January 29 & 30
The Seaside Institute is pleased to announce Allan B. Jacobs as the 2010 recipient of The Seaside Prize. Jacobs is widely known for his research and publications on urban design and regional planning. Join Jacobs and many others for a weekend filled with unique discussions, book signings and a cocktail dinner with special guests Chris & Idie Hastings.
Allan B. Jacobs has been a member of the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of California at Berkeley since 1975. Jacobs’ books, such as Great Streets, Looking at Cities and The Boulevard Book analyze and describe his observations on what makes great streets and thus, great cities. He has served as consultant to cities all over the world and was Director of Planning for San Francisco from 1967-1975.
The Seaside Prize is awarded annually to individuals or organizations that have made significant contributions to the quality and character of communities. The ceremony, which is free and open to the public, will be held in the Seaside Chapel.
The Seaside Prize Ceremony is only part of a busy two-day weekend celebration. The program begins on Friday, January 29th at 6 pm with a lecture and reception featuring John T. Edge. Edge is an author, New York Times Contributor and Director of Southern Foodways Alliance, and will discuss American Street Food. This discussion will be held at Great Southern Café and is presented by “Escape to Create.” Tickets are $20 per person and available at the door. For more information on the Escape to Create programs, please visit them online at: Escape to Create.
On Saturday, January 30th, Seaside Prize Recipient Allan B. Jacobs joins a panel discussion with renowned architects, planners and authors to discuss “The Life of Great Streets” at 10 am. Panelists will also include John T. Edge, Seaside Founder Robert Davis, Andres Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk, principals of DPZ, a major leader in the practice and direction of urban planning, and Melanie Hammet, a former Escape to Create artist. Following the discussion, guests are encouraged to enjoy “Lunch on the Street” by visiting one of our outdoor restaurants throughout Seaside. At 2 pm, join many of our guests for a book-signing event at Sundog Books, followed by the prize ceremony at 4 pm. All forums and discussions are free and open to the public.
The weekend concludes with “An Intimate Evening on the Avenue” where guests will join hosts Robert & Daryl Davis at their home in Seaside for a dinner prepared by Chris & Idie Hastings of Birmingham’s Hot and Hot Fish Club. The cocktail dinner will begin at 7 pm and tickets are $75 per person. All proceeds from the evening will benefit The Seaside Institute. To reserve your tickets, please contact The Seaside Institute at 850.231.2421 or visit them online at: The Seaside Institute.
Always a great event. Nice to see Seaside recognized and Seaside recognizing others.
