National AIA Urges Recision of Rudolph Building Demolition

The Board of the The American Institute of Architects, urges the Sarasota County School Board to rescind their vote to demolish the historic Rudolph building on the Riverview campus.

The resolution says in part:

American Institute of Architects Board of Directors, representing its 76,000 plus members, request that the Sarasota County School Board rescind its previous vote to demolish the original Paul Rudolph Riverview High School buildings and direct their architects to make a thorough and accurate evaluation of rehabilitating the historic buildings and incorporating them into the new school design.

We sincerely hope the School Board takes note of this national effort and reviews their decision to demolish the Rudolph building.
