Center for Architecture Sarasota


Center for Architecture’s goal is to heighten our region’s understanding of and appreciation for architecture, design, urban planning and sustainability and to remind us all that good design truly enriches our lives.


Our programs and events are open to all and designed to bring together community members and leaders, students of all ages, professionals, young people and visitors to admire, learn, and discuss our built environment and the importance of good design. The Center also houses the University of Florida CityLab Sarasota, a Master’s degree program in architecture dedicated to providing its students with direct involvement in real-world community projects as they prepare for their entry

into the profession.
