About Sarasota Modern

Sarasota School of Architecture

Sarasota is the birthplace of the Sarasota School of Architecture, also known as Sarasota Modern. It was a design movement founded by Ralph Twitchell in the 1940’s.

Twitchell eventually partnered with Paul Rudolph, and their success attracted a prominent group of like-minded architects to the region such as Gene Leedy, Tim Seibert, Jack West, Victor Lundy, William Rupp, Carl Abbott and Mark Hampton.

Characteristics of Sarasota Modern

This design movement is synonymous with experimental techniques. It is characterized by open structures, often with large planes of glass to facilitate natural illumination and ventilation, that address the unique indigenous requirements of the regional climate.

Most of these structures have been recognized by the American Institute of Architects and placed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
