Photographed in 1995, February 2010 & October 17, 2012. As is well known, the college campus is the largest collection of FLW buildings anywhere. Click here for a page about the general characteristics of the buildings. This was the first FLW building completed on campus; started in 1939, it was completed in 1941. Two walls and the skylight collapsed in 1944s Cuba-Florida Hurricane, and were restored.

Note the angular brickwork at the bottom of the building where it meets the concrete apron. This was designed to give the impression that the building is floating in air.

Note the Espalanade (covered walkway) in the left photo; this style was a replacement, and stretched to the Polk Science building.

It was later replaced with a replica of the original Wright design.
