Project Description

Inspired by the gracefulness of birds in flight, the student union building at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University is an expression of its mission to teach the science, practice and business of aviation and aerospace. Located at the front door to the campus, the building’s gently soaring form expressing flight creates an iconic identity for the University and embodies the student values of fearlessness, adventure and discovery.

Internally, the student union building is an aeronautical athenaeum combining social learning spaces, events, dining and the university library. A soaring, triple height commons anchors and integrates the collaborative social and learning interiors. Wrapping this space and open to it are lounges, dining venues, group study rooms, clubs and organizations, career services and the university library as well as an event center, creating a virtual “city within a city”.
