Center for Architecture Sarasota is a non-profit organization based in a newly-restored 1960’s downtown building originally designed by two architects from the Sarasota School of Architecture. Along with its partner, the UF Graduate School of Architecture’s CityLab Sarasota. The Center presents exhibits, lectures, tours and events to foster the public’s understanding of the influence of architecture and design in enriching the Sarasota region – and our lives.
