The Center is located in the McCulloch Pavilion, a significant surviving example of commercial architecture completed during the period of time that has since become known as the Sarasota School of Architecture (1940s – 1960s).

Award-winning and internationally recognized architects William Rupp and Joseph Farrell designed the structure in 1960. Their legacies as important masters remain preserved in this building, one of the last remaining commercial projects in Sarasota designed by either architect. The Center for Architecture Sarasota is steadfast in its goal to preserve this building as a center for education and research through the support of members and generous donors.

The Center’s activities would not be possible without the generosity of its supporters. We hope you will consider showing your support and appreciation for the Center for Architecture by making a contribution as a program sponsor, a general donation or donating materials, supplies and in-kind services. Naming opportunities for gallery spaces are also available.
