You may have seen this building under construction in the background of Dodge Ram Pick-up television commercials last fall. But you may not have recognized it as a local landmark, if you don’t drive I-4 through Lakeland regularly.

Beth Kassab of the Orlando Sentinel stopped in and chatted with some of the students, who are starting their second semester at the new Florida University System campus. You can read her article here:

Architect Magazine had a feature article last November by Christopher Hawthorne, on the building designed by Santiago Calatrava, with some great photography, plans, sections, and a good review of the design. You can read it at this link:
