Under new leadership, the Center for Architecture Sarasota will focus on “socially responsive” architecture for both its fourth annual Architecture and Design Month in October and the remainder of the exhibition season.
“Architecture and design is part of everything we do” as community residents, said Tammy Hauser, the nonprofit organization’s new executive director following the retirement of founder Cindy Peterson, Hon. AIA. “You can’t separate that.
“Buildings need to connect. We want to show that architecture is more about the experience than the buildings themselves,” Hauser added, “and how architecture can be responsive to social issues. It is not separate from how we live our lives and how it shapes our communities.
