Sarasota-Siesta Key

Ca’d ‘Zan & Ringling

This classic Sarasota staple draws inspiration from Mediterranean and Italian sources. Built with local woods and inspired by Mabel & John's travels to Italy, it's the perfect place to start an architectural tour of Sarasota.

Victor Lundy

Pagoda-style buildings like our original Chamber of Commerce as well as the curved-roof structure of St. Paul Lutheran Church, which was designed when everyone else was focusing on boxy, rectangular forms. Our mid-century knows how to do it better.

Minimalism from Paul Rudolph

Building parts of the high school, a fabulous umbrella house, and much more,  Jonathan Parks Architect brought us the Palm Avenue Parking Garage (yes, in Sarasota, even parking garages are works of art!) and the Mumford Pool House.
