Regarding Selection as the 2012 AIA Tampa Bay Firm of the Year

Florida Southern's McKay Archives Center stands as a singular example of Straughn Trout's exceptional architectural design work and capacity for integrating new works into existing historic landscapes. Few firms have achieved the honor of having their design constructed adjacent to the work of an icon of American architecture, and I believe that Mr. Wright would be as pleased as we are to have your stunning design on our National Historic Landmark, Frank Lloyd Wright campus. Congratulations again on this wonderful recognition.
