Description - The Sarasota School of Architecture, 1941--1966 by John Howey
Inflected by local climate, construction practices, regional culture, and Florida lifestyle, the work of the Sarasota school of architecture marks a high point in the development of regional modernism in American architecture. Although the Sarasota school wasn't a consciously organized movement, it was an important chapter in American modernism that, unlike the earlier Bay Area school and Chicago school, has received little study or published scholarly treatment. John Howey provides the a documentation of the Sarasota group's designs and theories. He has interviewed all of the surviving architects and original clients and has included photographs by Ezra Stoller, Alexandra Georges, and others.
