Architecture Sarasota is excited to announce the launch of Downtown Sarasota: Hindsight, Insight and Foresight, a four-part speaker series conceived to spark an informed and constructive community-wide discussion about downtown’s future. To be held at the Art Ovation Hotel, the six-week series will explore  downtown Sarasota’s evolution over the last two decades with a group of four distinguished speakers—Andrés Duany, David Houle, Mitchell Silver, and Victor Dover.  Speakers will address vital topics, including the current downtown master plan and how it was shaped two decades ago; how downtown has developed since then; the macro-level forces affecting the city; effective current downtown planning practices; and insights drawn from successful urban planning in other locales.

This series is made possible in part through the generosity of the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, Ian Black Real Estate, Howard and Sherry Davis, Richard and Pamela Mones, and Anne and Bob Essner.
