This last picture is part of Sarasota High which was also designed by Paul Rudolph, however unlike its Riverview counterpart it was recently renovated.


The interior was largely gutted to make more room, used to have floating walkways.

the the natural lighting for the interior is one of the more interesting features and design gems of that building.

Don't understand why they demolish such buildings. Most of them are good.

It's very subjective. IMO the main problem with modernist structures from the 1960s-1990s was that they interfered with their surroundings. Placing modernist architecture anywhere near historical blocks is always very risky.

Many look very sculptural and this is especially true of brutalist buildings but the reality is there were many poor design decisions made when building them. I actually love the style of them though.
