Miami Dade College InterAmerican Campus - Building 6

Miami Dade College InterAmerican Campus - Building 6

Miami

Built in 2017.

Designed by M.C. Harry & Associates, Inc..

Unprecedented growth was the catalyst to create a truly unique college campus located at the crossroads of two urban thoroughfares. Faced with limited options to increase capacity, the College elected to purchase a decades-old high rise office building adjacent to their existing campus and pursue an adaptive reuse and modernization program. To accommodate the comings and goings of more than 1500 students per hour, a new stair and elevator core was added to the tower’s exterior connecting the entry courtyard with 27 new classrooms and a variety of student amenities ranging from a penthouse level multipurpose suite, a Student Life Center, Library and Bookstore, to multiple food and beverage options, a computer courtyard ‘Learning Commons’, and several Student Collaboration Patios with views to the courtyard below. The building is clad in a series of polychromatic panels which conceal the building’s lackluster parking garage environment and provide iconic identity for the College and the surrounding community.
