The American Institute of Architects Florida Chapter named the University of North Florida Student Union to its list of the state’s Top 100 Buildings in its “Florida Architecture: 100Years, 100 Places” publication. This list is a compilation of what is considered the most architecturally significant buildings constructed in the state in the past 100 years.
It is an incredible honor to be included in such company as other prominent north Florida architects Paul Rudolph, William Morgan and Bob Broward. The public will be invited to vote for its favorite buildings on the AIA Florida website March 5 through March 31.
Completed in 2009 the 147,000 square-foot building has become a campus icon serving as the social and administrative center of student activities. This state-of-the-art, LEED® Gold facility is constructed of two parallel wings flanking a covered courtyard that links student clubs, government and organizations with dining, entertainment and social spaces.
The building was designed by Glenn Dasher who acted as a principal and project designer while at Rink Design Partnership.
