Several world-renowned architectural firms and others who have created iconic projects around the world are on the list of potential firms to design the proposed Sarasota Center for the Performing Arts.

Gehry Partners LLP, the firm founded by Frank Gehry, one of the world’s most famous architects, who designed the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain, is among 18 firms invited to submit proposals by the Architect Selection Task Force. The committee was put together to recommend a company to the city of Sarasota and the Van Wezel Foundation, which is overseeing the project. The proposals will not include a potential design for the new building but are intended to demonstrate each company’s ability to undertake the scale of the new building.
