FIU Campus Projects

FIU Campus ProjectsMiami, USA

FIU School of Architecture. Planned for a young and growing regional public university in a city that feels the pulse of the Caribbean and Latin America, the School of Architecture focuses on designing communal spaces to activate the student body and promote discussions and interactions beyond the classrooms and studios. Designed by Bernard Tschumi Architects, the award-winning project is organized around a central courtyard housing approximately 480 students and 70 faculty members. It includes undergrad and graduate studio spaces, offices, a lecture hall, a gallery, a rooftop terrace, small review rooms, computer labs, and flexible classrooms. Mr.Berenblum was the executive architect while principal at another firm. The project received the Miami AIA Award and was featured in several publications.

FIU Chapman Graduate School of Business. The forward-looking academic building is organized around two interlocking courtyards to foster interaction between students, faculty, and administrators while supporting the independence required by the educational programs. Classrooms are accessed through an open-air arcade that takes advantage of the sub-tropical climate. The 92,000-sf building includes a 300-seat auditorium, student support spaces, classrooms, multi-purpose rooms, an executive board room, a stock trading room, lockers, and administrative and faculty offices. KPF designed the project; Mr. Berenblum was the executive architect while principal at another firm. The Graduate Business School received the Chicago Atheneum Museum of Architecture and Design American Architecture Award (2008) and the Construction Association of South Florida Craftmanship Award (2008)—a project characterized by its intelligent adaptive reuse that elevates the passenger experience.

FIU Ryder BuildingMiami, USA

The 30,000 sq. ft. Ryder Business undergraduate building underwent a comprehensive upgrade planned in phases by BBAmiami to modernize its appearance and key interior spaces. During the first phase, a new exterior color scheme was devised that established a dialogue with the adjacent graduate business building, reinforcing this quadrant of the campus. The lobby was completely renovated in the second phase, and a new media lab was planned, showcasing the school’s commitment to technology and immersive education. The third phase included ground-floor classroom renovations and future improvements extending to administrative offices, other classrooms, and support spaces.

MARC Building Renovation

MARC Building RenovationMiami, Florida

FIU hired BBA’s creative team to freshen-up the MARC building exterior and lobby space of this key structure located at the main Campus. One of the proposed updates was to implement a new color scheme aligned with the latest University-wide branding strategy. The project was very successful and BBA was later retained by FIU as a design consultant to oversee the exterior color planning on several other existing buildings in order to achieve a more consistent and coherent Campus look.
