Florida/Caribbean Architect - Summer 2015 - (Page 12)

Mark Hampton, FAIA, 1923-2015 A Tribute One of the last great members of the Sarasota School of Architecture died in February 2015. Mark Hampton will be remembered and missed by his friends, fellow architects and students of architectural history. Mark was a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and recipient of the Florida Association's Medal of Honor for Design. In 2010, The University of Miami School of Architecture held a retrospective of his work. But these honors don't begin to speak to the truly outstanding and exemplary quality of his professional career and his immeasurable contributions to the profession. Two people who knew and worked with Mark sent material to be used in this tribute. Dwight E. Holmes, FAIA, and Steven Brooke, photographer and Adjunct Professor in the University of Miami School of Archtiecture, both worked with Mark, albeit in different capacities. For Dwight Holmes, Mark was a mentor during the first 10 years of his career and a lifelong friend. Renowned photographer Steven Brooke photographed many of Mark's projects, producing beautiful black and white and color images, several of which have graced the cover and pages of this magazine. Please read their thoughts and words and enjoy the photos included here. "Mark Hampton began his architecture career in the Sarasota office of Twitchell & Rudolph in 1951 and he has since been recognized as one of the major architects in the now-famous Sarasota School. His work has won numerous awards and been widely published. In every sense of the word, Mark's career was distinguished. I had the privilege of working for and with Mark for the first years of my career and as my mentor, he instilled in me many of the most important axioms I have used throughout my professional career. Foremost among those was the challenge to always do the best job possible regardless of any and all obstacles. Mark's office was located in PHOTO BY STEVEN BROOKE.
