Patriot Plaza at Sarasota National Cemetery
Built in 2014.
Designed by Hoyt Architects.
Patriot Plaza within Sarasota National Cemetery is an 85,000 sqft assembly space. The design emphasizes transparency and open sight lines. Sweeping curvilinear canopies of translucent glass rise 50 ft and protect the 2800 seat amphitheater and 60 foot rostrum. Three entrances feed into circulation paths along which art installations tell stories in a palette of white stone, colorful mosaics and bronze. Small spaces along the paths allow visitors to step off to contemplate art. Landscape transitions from outer, park-like green space to structured, paved inner core.
