Southwest Florida Roundup

Florida Southern College's Wright Stuff

Art Levy | 2/28/2014

Working from architectural plans created by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1938, Florida Southern in Lakeland began work on a 13th Wright building a few years back. But the building won’t be used for faculty housing, as originally intended. Instead, will be home to the Sharp Family Tourism and Education Center, the first stop for visitors wanting to see the campus’s collection of Wright buildings.

  • Take action: He should adopt recommendations and move quickly to avoid greater disaster and economic problems.
  • Remain neutral but at least make a statement addressing concerns.
  • Take no action. Gov. Scott has more important, more immediate matters to attend to.
