Sarasota School of Architecture

Bass Residence - Architect Paul Rudolph

"While the Sarasota School found its inspiration in part from the philosophies of the Bauhaus, it incorporated forms of regional Southern architecture, using patios, verandas, modular construction and raised floors to open up its buildings for greater ventilation in pre-air conditioning days. The style added a play of light and shadow, and the color and texture of indigenous low maintenance materials, softening the cold machine aesthetic of the Bauhaus. This approach to design strengthened the connection between architecture and environment, allowing Sarasota School buildings to respect and blend well into their sites. The result was a regional modernism which blurred the distinction between the indoors and outdoors and accommodated the lifestyle and climate of southern Florida."

"Sarasota in the 1950s was one of the most important places
in the world for architectural creativity, where the greatest design movements of the day came together."


— Carl Abbott FAIA, original member of the Sarasota School of Architecture
