Client: Florida International University Location: Miami, Florida. Size of Project: Construction Cost: Completion date: Unique Features:
Bermello Ajamil & Partners created a new, prototype entrance feature for the main campus of Florida International University. Design vocabulary for this ceremonial entrance, symbolizing the university and creating a sense of place, employs standards such as the use of arches and keystone material.
The four-lane entry drive passes under a portal bearing the university name and logo. A row of royal palms extends to the public roadway. Decorative pavers accent the plaza and driveway, and dramatic lighting calls attention to the trees and arches.
