Sarasota has made another national list—and this one's not about the beaches or retirement

The New York Times recently published a list of "52 Places for a Changed World," which  highlights places around the world where innovations in sustainability and conservation help residents and tourists achieve a better quality of life. (In addition to Sarasota, the list includes cities in Egypt, Italy, Argentina and Alaska.) This year's list is a new take on the Times' annual "52 Places to Visit" article.

Sarasota is celebrated for its dedication to preserving and celebrating Sarasota School of Architecture buildings; the article features a picture of the Revere Quality House, designed by Ralph Twitchell and Paul Rudolph, both leaders of the Sarasota School movement. Award-winning writer Alexander Lobrano—who splits his time between Sarasota and Paris, and who penned an article about the future of wild Gulf shrimp for our January-February 2022 issue—authored the piece, which also shouts out Architecture Sarasota, the newly formed nonprofit that's a merger of the former Sarasota Architectural Foundation and Center for Architecture Sarasota.
