"At a time when designers and architects are thinking more and more about sustainability issues in their practices, they often ignore or are ignorant of past examples, such as the important work done by the Sarasota School in the days when architects naturally built to climate.
Paul Rudolph's Riverview High School is a case study, a beautiful expression of climate sensitive architecture. This film advocates a thoughtful evaluation of the building and the ideas designed into the school such as day-lighting, natural ventilation, sun-screens, and shade-giving plantings."

Other Rudolph projects in Florida are also reviewed.
