University of Florida's traditionally modern graduate building

June 01, 2009 |

The University of Florida's Hough Hall Graduate Studies Building was designed by Rowe Architects, Tampa, and Sasaki Associates, Boston, to blend with the school's traditional collegiate gothic architecture outside, but reflect a 21st-century education facility inside. Tallahassee-based Ajax Building Corporation is constructing the $19 million facility, which will have traditional exterior details such as a red clay tile roof, brick veneer, and cast stone and concrete accents. Inside the 70,000-sf facility, a three-story atrium connects to flex spaces, breakout rooms, and student lounges, along with five traditional classrooms and a Financial Markets Lab where students can participate in simulated stock and commodities trading. A fall 2010 completion date is planned for the facility, which seeks to earn LEED Gold certification.
