Polk County Science Building

The Polk County Science Building was the largest and most complex of all the master architect Frank Lloyd Wright structures at Florida Southern College - the largest collection of Wright designed buildings anywhere.  Completed in 1958, this 6,000 sqm multi-use teaching facility (incorporating the only Wright-designed planetarium) had slowly deteriorated over time and became unusable by the early 1990s.  JMP transformed the building into a modern, multi-use teaching facility, removing later non-Wright designed extensions, re-building its decayed fabric, inserting new uses and replacing all its building systems.
