Dedication of Historic Designation of the Scott Building
Center for Architecture Sarasota celebrates the designation of the 1960 Scott Building to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Scott Building, renamed The McCulloch Pavilion after generous CFAS donor, Nathalie McCulloch, is a significant surviving example of commercial architecture that was completed during the period that has since become known as the Sarasota School of Architecture, or Sarasota Modern School. The structure was designed in 1960 by award-winning and nationally-recognized architects, William Rupp and Joseph Farrell. The repurpose and preservation was achieved in 2014 through a partnership that was formed between CFAS, Sarasota County, and the UF Graduate School of Architecture to bring to reality the Scott Building as a center for community engagement on the importance of the built environment.
The renovation was completed by the Guy Peterson Office for Architecture, and builder, Michael K. Walker and Associates. The McCulloch Pavilion received the American Institute of Architects Honor Award for Historic Preservation in 2015.
