Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture Building
Its yellow, orange and red ceramic tile exterior makes it is the most identifiable building on campus.
The Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture Building is named in honor of the former Ambassador to Belgium and South Florida civic leader who was one of our most important advocates in the establishment of the FIU School of Architecture.
The 102,000-square-foot facility was designed by architect Bernard Tschumi and features a multi-level technologically advanced studio with space for 375 students. Students enjoy the exterior courtyard space and an ultra-modern auditorium with an advanced audio/visual system. Of the project, Tschumi said, "Our project starts from the following thesis: Architecture can generate interaction. Through their programs, as much as through their spatial organization, buildings can intensify social or cultural interfaces."
