At a meeting with the University of South Florida System Board of Trustees this morning, Dr. Santiago Calatrava unveiled his vision for the USFP campus.
I’m going to link to a few screen grabs I made, but you’ll need to watch the full video. Until then you can see his presentation one hour into the Oct. 27, 2009 meeting.
Calatrava led the audience through his background, his previous designs, and the metamorphosis of his plan for the University of South Florida Polytechnic campus.
Calatrava explains how the shape of the land, the image he saw there, and the human shape started his thoughts on the campus design.
Calatrava displays two of his campus designs and what each design attempted to accomplish.
Two further refinements for the campus plan.
A study of an option for the water’s edge on the central campus lake.
Graceful bridges over the central campus lake.

Update: Fixed Board of Governors to the correct University of South Florida System Board of Trustees. Thanks for the note, USFP.
