Architecture Sarasota's MOD Weekend Honors Legacy of Philip Hiss

Business

The Member’s only advance sale period has ended, and ALL MOD tickets are now on sale. The 2021 MOD honors Philip Hanson Hiss, the primary catalyst of the modern architecture movement in Sarasota. The three-day event, November 12-14, will celebrate Hiss’s forward-thinking ideas and how they gave rise to the origins of the Sarasota School of Architecture (SSA). 

“Celebrating the legacy of Philip Hiss—the man who made Sarasota Modern—gives us the opportunity to share the origin story of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Hiss’ massive contributions to our community—intellectually, creatively, aesthetically—are but a microcosm of his impact nationally as a thought leader engaging with forward- thinking colleagues across the country, from Alfred Barr to Walter Paepcke to Margaret Mead,” said Anne-Marie Russell, Executive Director of Architecture Sarasota.

The festivities kick off Thursday with a private VIP Champagne reception for Architecture Sarasota Circle level Members and MOD VIP Pass holders. Friday night welcomes guests to the Party Under the Banyan Tree at Hiss Studio, Saturday begins with the morning Symposium and an afternoon of walking, trolley and kayak tours. The inaugural Hiss Dinner on Saturday night celebrates the launch of Architecture Sarasota and The Hiss Award, and the tours continue on Sunday.
