    I live in Canada and visit Sarasota often. I have been a fan of the Sarasota School of Architecture and follow the new modern architecture builds in Sarasota. I would like to receive a copy of the March 2018 SRQ Magazine Home of the Year awards issue.

    Can you help?

    1. Wayne, did you ever get that copy you were looking for? Send me an email at and we’ll make it happen!
