SarasotaMOD 2017 Tickets on sale

On Saturday, August 12th, SAF enjoyed an amazing tour of architect Paul Rudolph's Milam House, a modernist masterpiece in Ponte Vedra, Florida. Built in 1961, this was Rudolph's last Florida residence and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016. Carl Abbott, FAIA, presented a talk about Rudolph's legacy and what it was like to study under Rudolph at Yale University in 1962.

The Milam House is officially for sale from the original owner. Watch the listing video: Contact Realtor Clare Berry for more information:

Umbrella House Construction Completed
This time-lapse video shows the construction phase of the meticulously rebuilt pool canopy of architect Paul Rudolph’s 1953 Umbrella House in Sarasota, Florida from October to November 2015. "Architectural Digest" described the Umbrella House as “one of the five most remarkable houses of the mid-twentieth century”.

The Sarasota Architectural Foundation (SAF) celebrates the Sarasota School of Architecture movement, and advocates to preserve the midcentury modern structures that exemplify its forward-looking principles.

SAF's "Sarasota Architecture Matters" campaign features five of the most important Sarasota School structures. The Umbrella House, designed by architect Paul Rudolph in 1953, is currently undergoing a meticulous restoration by the homeowners.

Thank you to filmmaker and producer Craig Worsham, 82º West Marketing,, Raeanne Malone, Bob Essner, Carl Abbott, Dr. Barry LaClair, Janet Minker, Christopher Wilson and Dan Snyder.

“I consider myself both [an architect and an artist]. For me, art is architecture — and architecture is art. They’re forms of creative expression in very different media, but they come from the same place.” — Victor Lundy
