What is the “MOD” Weekend in Sarasota?

| Suncoast Post Staff |

Architecture Sarasota is pleased to announce its 10th annual Sarasota MOD Weekend, a three-day architecture festival celebrating the legacy and global impact of the Sarasota School of Architecture (a.k.a. Sarasota Modern) — the regional, mid-century modern architecture movement that has come to define the cultural landscape in and around the city of Sarasota, and which continues to influence architects and designers around the world. This year’s MOD Weekend will center around the centennial of renowned Sarasota School architect Victor Lundy, honoring him with an exhibition and symposium that jointly traces his life and legacy.

Tickets for individual events and experiences range in price from $30 to $225 for Architecture Sarasota members and from $40 to $250 for non-members. All proceeds from Sarasota MOD Weekend directly support Architecture Sarasota’s mission and work. Purchase tickets HERE.
