The Gene Leedy Influence is a short film that highlights the 1956 home of Gene Leedy, an icon of the famed Sarasota School of Architecture.  Architect Max Strang, a Florida native who grew up in a Leedy-designed home, explores the legacy of Leedy through a uniquely personal lens. Anne-Marie Russell, Executive Director of Architecture Sarasota, joins Strang to discuss the ongoing relevance of Leedy’s ‘regional modernist’ architecture and how his childhood exposure to Leedy informed his own architectural career. Afterwards, Leedy’s son Ingram joins Max to reminisce on a childhood immersed in exposed structure, passive design and cigar smoke.


The organizer of this program is Modernism Week. This program is streaming through May 31, 2021.
