Since the mid-20th century, Sarasota has been globally recognized as an epicenter of modern architecture. Responding to the geography, climate, and socio-cultural context of Florida's Southern Gulf Coast, the work of Paul Rudolph, Victor Lundy, and others helped evolve a place-specific approach to modern design.

The Sarasota School of Architecture, as it has come to be known, transformed the local built environment and contributed to national and international discourses on modern architecture during the postwar period. Although it ebbed overtime, the distinct design ethos has experienced a resurgence as a new generation of designers are once again transforming Sarasota and architectural practice.

This presentation re-examines the origins of the Sarasota School and its continued influence on contemporary design and shares the work of Architecture Sarasota to help preserve and advocate for this legacy - both its past and future.

Architecture Sarasota's mission is to steward the legacy of the Sarasota School of Architecture and provide a forum for the education, advocacy, and celebration of good design in the global built environment. Morris (Marty) Hylton III is the current President of Architecture Sarasota. One of the founders of the World Monuments Fund's Modernism at Risk, Marty has spent 25 years documenting, conserving, and advocating for cultural heritage globally.  IG @architecturesrq    FB ArchitectureSarasota
