IN / FORMED BY THE LAND - The Architecture of Carl Abbott

[Carl Abbott] For the past four decades Carl's Sarasota Architectural office has been one of the most highly awarded firms in the Florida / Caribbean region. As its youngest and last remaining member of the Sarasota School of Architecture, he has carried on its traditions while also incorporating his own unique design concepts.
Carl Abbott grew up in a small town in coastal Georgia where his world was Nature — later Architecture became his focus. He studied at the University of Florida under Buckminster Fuller then received his Master's from Yale with studies under Paul Rudolph and Luis Kahn. He has worked in Hawaii, in New York with I.M. Pei, and in London with classmates Lord Richard Rogers and Lord Norman Foster.
Carl is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects. The University of Florida honored him as a Distinguished Architectural Alumnus. The Florida / Caribbean AIA selected him to receive the Medal of Honor for Design and also selected his office to receive the Architectural Firm Honor Award. IN / FORMED BY THE LAND - The Architecture of Carl Abbott is the first book exclusively on Abbottʼs design process and architecture. It will be published this year by ORO Publications.
