Project Overview

The Innovation, Science, and Technology (IST) Building is Florida Polytechnic’s flagship building. The 162,000-square-foot, white-domed building is a moveable and functional work of art. The building includes a system of 94 louvered arms that raise and lower throughout the day providing passive lighting inside the second-floor atrium. The louvers track the sun above a glass roof. The oval-shaped building is ringed by curved metal pergolas that shade its outer terrace and walkways. The IST building houses 26 classrooms, Aula Magna auditorium, faculty and administrative offices, 11,000-square-foot Saddle Creek Logistics Commons, seven innovation labs-including a 3D printing lab, cybersecurity lab, and health informatics lab-where students are able to get hands-on experience with the latest technology, as well as the Mosaic CafĂ©. This project was completed by our Orlando, Florida, team.
