Mission Statement

Sarasota enjoys a rich architectural history that has been furthered by current talented architects and designers. The Center for Architecture was created in 2013 to ensure this legacy is appreciated and that the designers of today have a forum.

The Center for Architecture is a not-for-profit member supported exhibit space and lecture hall; a meeting place and destination for people who believe good design matters. Through exhibits, lectures, tours and special events, our center provides a place where design professionals, community leaders, students, and the public can admire, discuss and debate our built environment.

Throughout time, architecture has persisted as one of the most profoundly important reflections of culture. It defines civilizations and shapes the way we live.

The Center for Architecture Sarasota is dedicated to heightening awareness of and appreciation for innovative architecture, good design, and resilient urban planning.
