Design Intent

The Chapman Building’s design concept was created out of the necessity of creating interactions among faculty and students, while still incorporating a slight separation between the undergraduate and graduate portions of the facility. The architects also infused appreciation for the tropical climate by creating open walkways, and also gave a subtle nod to the Latin heritage of the area and Mayan culture with the design of the two grand staircases.

Architectural Features

The Chapman Building contains classrooms, administrative/faculty offices, a 300-seat auditorium seating, student study areas, a large multipurpose room for events, and a café. The design intent was to both incorporate and separate the upper- and lower-divisions of the school. Thus, the main courtyard divides the space in two, creating two interlocking spaces. The faculty’s entrance is located on the east (front) side of the building, and students arrive via the outdoor breezeways. Modern water features of wall fountains and shallow pools draw the visitor into the courtyard, where the focus becomes the grand staircase, reminiscent of early South American cultures.

Significance

The Chapman building represents yet another architectural success on the Florida International University Campus, each incorporating design with the desire to accommodate the needs of the students and faculty. Additionally, it successfully celebrates the multi-cultural makeup of the school. This building is particularly important because, as the University grows, it must be able to compete with the surrounding South Florida education market. Since the Alvah H. Chapman, Jr. School of Business Administration is 1 of 15 universities to be globally accredited by the AACSB International- The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, it is increasingly important that the structure of the school be representative of the modern, progressive, culturally-relevant program it contains.
