SARASOTA, Florida – On Saturday, Feb. 16, the Sarasota Architectural Foundation (SAF) presents a talk and trolley tour exploring the life and work of architect Edward J. “Tim” Seibert, FAIA, one of the original members of the mid-century modern Sarasota School of Architecture. The talk will be led by Harold Bubil, real estate editor emeritus for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, with commentary from architect Sam Holladay, principal for Seibert Architects.
The presentation begins at 1 p.m. at the Ringling College of Art + Design. Registration is $120 for the public, or $100 for SAF members, with proceeds benefiting SAF’s Paul Rudolph Scholarship Fund, dedicated in 2019 to Tim Seibert. (Talk and refreshments only: $30.)
Seibert’s four-decade career had significant impact on the architectural style of southwest Florida homes and commercial buildings, and his designs can be seen from downtown Sarasota to Southgate, and on Siesta, Lido and Longboat keys. He began his career as a draftsman for famed Sarasota architect Paul Rudolph and went on to open Seibert Architects in 1955. Seibert retired in 1994 and passed away in 2018. SarasotaMOD honored the legacy of Seibert in 2017.
Seibert’s significant local works include the Hiss Studio on Lido Shores (next door to Rudolph’s famed Umbrella House), the Siesta Key Beach Pavilion, the Lido Key Beach Pavilion, and the John D. MacDonald House on Big Pass.
Harold Bubil served as real estate editor for the Sarasota Herald-Tribune from 1994 until his recent retirement. Samuel Holladay, AIA, joined Seibert Architects in 1972 and became the firm’s first president in 1994 after Tim Seibert retired.
