McAslan launches last-ditch effort to save Rudolph's Riverview

John McAslan has urged the state governor of Florida to intervene in a final bid to save Paul Rudolph’s seminal 1958 Riverview High School in Sarasota from demolition.

As well as writing to Charles Crist, McAslan also launched a call to arms to the UK’s leading designers after the Sarasota County School Board rejected a $50 million (£25 million) rescue plan, claiming it lacked a ‘credible’ funding package.

It is understood Richard Rogers has promised to back McAslan’s attempt to halt the destruction of the school which the board wants to flatten to make way for 1,000 car parking spaces for a new campus (AJ online 21.07.07).
