About the Exhibition 

 

Joe Farrell is one of the two original architects commissioned in 1959 to build the historic Scott building, now the McCulloch Pavilion housing the Center for Architecture and CityLab Sarasota. A native of Sarasota and graduate of University of Florida, Farrell spent his earliest years in architecture working under Paul Rudolph. The exhibit demonstrates how his love of architecture began, with early projects with Rudolph, his work with William Rupp including the historic Scott Building and his exemplary career with Architects Hawaii Ltd (AHL). Farrell became a Principal at AHL in 1969. His projects have received more than 40 design awards and honors, including the Governor of Hawaii’s Architectural Arts Award, which recognized architects who have produced projects that define ?Hawaiian Architecture.?
