This excellent venue is a mix of five structures of various levels interconnected with pathways and bridges that together offer 102Thousand sq ft of condition-of-the-art class, studio, gallery, workshop and work place. The structures speak in confidence to a main courtyard the architect hopes will promote interaction among students and also the faculty.

Cejas, the previous U.S. Ambassador to Belgium and longtime supporter from the College of Architecture + The Humanities. Years back, Paul L. Cejas, as part of the condition Board of Regents, championed the development of the college and then designed a significant philanthropic gift to FIU amassing $two million for the college of Architecture.
