“Buildings in white, with splashes of color woven elegantly in between-it’s the perfect way to describe Sarasota,” said Keith Redding of Keys Solutions Real Estate. The elements that draw in some of the world’s greatest architects, also pulls in some of the world’s finest individuals, in search of great beaches, a vibrant arts scene, and an involved history with architecture.
Sarasota’s history has worked to make this area a center for arts and culture. John and Mable Ringling, of Ringling Brothers Circus, made Sarasota their home and the summer spot for their circus. With them, they brought the vibrant culture of the circus and the colorful traditions. You’ll find the influence of the circus on buildings such as Ca’ d’Zan, the Ringling’s home, and The Circus Arts Conservatory. Sarasota has also been the home and proving grounds of many recognized architects, such as Tim Seibert, Mark Hampton, and Paul Rudolph. Their work on homes in Sarasota helped find the Sarasota School of Architecture, known for its combination of traditional modern with pops of color and natural materials.
The city’s clientele is very discerning when it comes to architecture, spending time searching out some of the area’s finest creations. The Sarasota Architectural Foundation works to educate and preserve some of the area’s finest examples of modern architecture, such as the Umbrella Home and the Walker Guest House. They often host events supporting and celebrating these homes, such as SarasotaMOD, a weekend festival celebrating this specialized school of architecture and its creators. They also offer tours of certain examples of the Sarasota School of Architecture.
The warm weather and tropical atmosphere draws in creative types of all kinds, searching for a breezy and easy lifestyle. It also changes certain architecture elements drastically. When you view examples of Sarasota School of Architecture, you’ll find pops of color in areas where there usually aren’t any, areas that seamlessly open out to natural areas, and materials taken from nature in place of man made ones. Sarasota’s residents have been receptive to architects’ desire to play within the modern style of design, making it the playground of many well-recognized architects.
