Umbrella House Tour
Tour the renowned Umbrella House, described by Architectural Digest as “One of the five most remarkable houses of the mid-twentieth century”. In 1953, Lido Shores developer Philip Hiss hired architect Paul Rudolph, co-founder of the Sarasota School movement, to create one of the 20th century's most iconic houses. The dominant feature of the house, the aptly named "umbrella," was originally built of wood and used to shade the house from the intense Florida sun was destroyed in a storm in the 1960's. The full umbrella over the pool was restored in 2015 by Hall Architects, receiving the 2016 Florida Trust Outstanding Award, 2016 Florida AIA Honor Award and the 2016 Florida Gulf Coast Chapter AIA Honor Award. The Umbrella House will be open for the public to tour once a month through December 2019. Limited Tickets Available: Student @ $20 SAF Member @ $30 Public @ $40
