Architecture in the Neighborhood: Walking Tour of the CFAS Neighborhood

On Saturday, October 10, historian John McCarthy led a Walking Tour with thirty CFAS members back into early Sarasota history.  He recounted some great stories from the early settlement days and also provided a tutorial in architectural designs past and present.  The group walked through Laurel Park (designated a National Register of Historic Places District), Towels Court, Washington Park and Burns Court.  Thank you, John.  You are a treasure and we look forward to your next tour.

Kids at The Center – Architecture 101

The Children’s Lego “Bricks4Kidz” Program on Architecture: 101 was hosted at The Center on October 3. It was a magical day for the Center for Architecture Sarasota to have the building filled with the sounds of children and the lecture hall transformed into a “building zone” with LEGOS® piled high and children and parents sitting on the floor in serious contemplation.

The children, acting as  architects for the day, created their visions for a special building to be constructed in “Brick City” (named by the children) that was to be created in the middle of the room.  What they developed and the reasons why provided a brief window into the creative minds of these young children. We were surprised, educated and at times made to laugh with their building descriptions and sense of place.

The future of our built environment in our community, state, nation and the world resides in the creative minds of today’s youth.  CFAS looks forward to future opportunities to host more programs for these future visionaries and the opportunity for all of us to explore and design together.
