Designed by renowned architect, Santiago Calatrava, the new Innovation, Science & Technology building at Florida Polytechnic University will establish the design scheme for all other structures within the campus’ master plan, which Calatrava is also responsible. Until the other structures within the master plan are built, the new Innovation, Science & Technology building, which just broke ground in March will also need to function as the campus itself; being able to accommodate various events and functions. More images and architects’ description after the break. In addition to the classrooms, laboratories, administration offices and common spaces, the two-story structure will also feature a large amphitheater that can be used for hosting exhibitions, lectures and graduation ceremonies. Calatrava’s design also incorporates an outdoor garden terrace, shaded by a continuous pergola that serves as surrogate campus grounds and provides an outdoor learning, gathering and seating area.
