Paul Rudolph, Bert Brosmith, Ralph Twitchell, Victor Lundy, Tim Seibert, Jack West, Philip Hiss, Gene Leedy and Mark Hampton are the leading names of this particular regional style. Rudolph is arguably the biggest star, as the fanfare over the recent renovations of his Yale Art and Architecture Building attests to. However, within Sarasota he also designed a number of houses, schools, churches and public facilities. His Sanderling Beach Club is now on the National Register of Historic Places, and Riverview High School was recently nominated for the list of America's Most Endangered Places.
Sarasota Modern buildings can best be seen in Lido Shores, where Rudolph's Umbrella House sits alongside other important Sarasota Modern houses in this once exclusively Sarasota School of Architecture subdivision. Sarasota High School and Riverview High School also feature Rudolph's buildings.
