Architects plan, design and oversee building construction. Sarasota holds a place in architectural history because of the post-World War II regional movement known as the "Sarasota School of Architecture," which developed here. Paul Rudolph ranks as the biggest star of this style also known as Sarasota Modern but there were and are many practitioners of the tenets of this local design movement.

Legend tells of architects gathering to figure out how to bend plywood to form the curved shapes seen at the historic Sanderling Club (see my photo on the right) designed by Rudoph. Or adapting jaoulsie windows to capture breezes off the Gulf of Mexico in the days before air conditioning.
