SAF will lead an exclusive tour of architect Paul Rudolph's Milam House, a true modernist masterpiece. Built in 1961, this was Rudolph's last Florida residence and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2016.

Architectural Record's 1963 "House of the Year", the Milam House is a legendary example of the celebrated architect's expansive vision of architecture and served as an important segue in his career.

The iconic house is built on a 200-foot oceanfront lot, on a high bluff near Jacksonville, Florida.

According to Rudolph, in this house one locates oneself according to mood. 'The inglenook offers a nest, the two-story portion of the living-dining space provides a goldfish bowl, and the far end of the living area is a cave.'
— "Four Current Projects by Paul Rudolph." Architectural Record 129, March 1961

The Milam House is currently for sale by the original owner. The listing will be posted by Realtor Clare Berry the week of July 17. ClareBerryRealestate.com

There are two limited ticket options available: either an all-day bus trip from Sarasota (schedule below) or a self-driving ticket.

The Sarasota Bus Group will also have the opportunity to visit the William Morgan House in Atlantic Beach after the Milam tour. Internationally known modernist architect William Morgan, FAIA (1931-2016) studied under Walter Gropius, graduated from Harvard University, worked with Paul Rudolph and was one of the best-known and most influential Jacksonville architects of all time.

The Morgan House is for sale and will be listed the week of July 17 by Realtor Martie Lieberman, Premier Sotheby's International Realty, 941-724-1118. ModernSarasota.com
