Architect Gary Hoyt's Inspired Design of Patriot Plaza
Designed by Hoyt Architects Patriot Plaza within Sarasota National Cemetery is an 85,000 sq ft 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 the artful design. Landscape transitions from outer, park-like green space to structured, paved inner core. Our nation's national cemeteries are the final resting places for men and women who served our country with unmatched valor.
