Abstract:

"The Carrère & Hastings Digital Collection is a collaborative project with Flagler College. The collection will include over 200 architectural drawings from the 1880s-1920s for the Ponce de Leon Hotel (now Flagler College), the Memorial Presbyterian Church in St. Augustine, and select others by Carrère & Hastings, the Beaux-Arts architecture firm of John Merven Carrère and Thomas Hastings."

Carrère and Hastings were two of the most significant American architects of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, designing more than 600 buildings through the U.S. and beyond. In 1885 Flagler initiated a grand scheme to turn Florida into the "American Riviera" and St. Augustine into the "Winter Newport." The Hotel Ponce de Leon (1885-1887), now Ponce de Leon Hall at Flagler College (National Register, 1975; National Historic Landmark, 2006), was the first and the flagship of Henry Flagler's resort empire. This palatial Spanish Renaissance Revival hotel is nationally significant as it was the first commission for Carrère & Hastings and is America's first large cast-in-place concrete building. The other Carrère and Hastings projects included in this project are the Memorial Presbyterian Church (1889-1890) (NR 1983) and the Hotel Alcazar (1888-1889) (NR 1971)."
