    Carl Abbott FAIA is a Sarasota, Florida-based contemporary architect who studied under Paul Rudolph and Louis Kahn, and has been creating award winning architecture from the 'Sarasota School of Architecture' period to the present, through his firm, Carl Abbott + Associate Architect / Planners.

    To me, Carl has a masterful ability to design monumental buildings that can still bring one as close as possible to nature and the gorgeous environment that lies just outside the glass, or skin of his buildings. This is his remarkable ability, and it truly doubles the pleasure of enjoying the glorious creativity of his architecture. Do yourself a favor, and say YES to any opportunity to visit one of Carl Abbott's houses, or his studio, shown here.
