Photos: Newly Completed University Of Miami Architecture School By Arquitectonica

This is the new Thomas P Murphy Design Studio Building at the University of Miami.

The 20,000 square foot structure features warped concrete and hurricane resistant glass. It was designed by Architectonics’s Raymond Fort, who served as faculty at UM, according to Dezeen.

“The building is, in essence, a single, oversized shed, featuring a vaulted roof suspended 18 feet over the floor by narrow steel columns and a few fixed walls,” according to a project description.

“The exposed structure of glass and concrete serves as a teaching tool by illustrating some of the basic tenets of modern architecture, construction and sustainability.”

Seen in person too… it is disgusting. Really wish Miami would move away from the ugly designs of Arquitectonica. As long as they donate to the polis, they’ll keep getting contracts….ughhhh Miami

Looks like it belongs in MDC, either Kendall or North campus.. for those of you that think these designs are revolutionary… they have these buildings from the 70s and they still look ugly af

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Nobody thinks these designs are revolutionary stop with the hyperbole. We just think this building looks nice. Are we not allowed to compliment it?

I like the design but not the concrete. Just like all the concrete bridges in Florida it looks horrible once it’s out in the rain for a few years.

This would fit perfectly in North Korea.

Absolutely terrible on the inside. One large open space, and all hard materials on the walls, floor, and ceilings. It’s a boom box where you can’t even hear yourself think let along try and learn.

I think the building looks great but where is the landscape? It would look so much better with a few trees around!

I’m I the only one that hates the look of exposed concrete? Just looks unfinished an I see it a lot in Miami as if it’s a preferred taste.

I don’t mind it but wish they would have used a liner to create a more textured look like the walls. Or at least put some kind of sealant to create more of a sheen look on the underside.

I live in an Arquitectonica building and I love it.
I shop in an Arquitectonica building and I love that too.
So far, I have not met someone who has actually lived in an Arquitectonica building that doesn’t love it. They probably exist, but it is unlikely that any of them are posting here.

Too bad nothing Arquitectonica designs these days looks like there is as much thought put into it.

Concrete is a worldwide material…not specific to any region in the world.

“Concrete is a worldwide material…”

So is glass and wood. Too bad many times it looks hideous or boring, making everywhere look alike.
