SarasotaMod, the Sarasota Architecture Foundation’s annual celebration of Florida’s mecca of midcentury modern design, is coming next month. The weekend of November 8-10 focuses on “Sarasota in the Sixties,” with walking tours, trolley tours, presentations, parties, and more.
Architect Frank Folsom Smith will be singled out for his contributions to the city’s ’60’s architectural opus. Smith worked with architects Victor Lundy and William Zimmerman before going out on his own in 1961, becoming an integral player in what’s known as the Sarasota School of Architecture. You can read more about his career in this recent profile in Sarasota magazine. And you can view a video of his own home with his wife, interior designer Anne Smith, on YouTube.
Go to SarasotaMod to find out more about the celebration and to purchase advance tickets.
