Boca Raton, Florida

During the 2005-2006 academic year the Dean of the School for the Arts and Humanities of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) asked Michael Singer to provide a concept vision for an addition to the Visual Arts building, an interior space plan, and an integration of the building with the landscape and public space proposal of the Transformations Project. Singer engaged the College of Engineering in a research of structural and civil engineering issues along with a cost analysis that helped guide a collaboration with the Singer Studio Design Team. The new 10,0000 square foot building incorporates student gallery space, a new office for the Visual Arts Department, seminar and studio classrooms, and outdoor roof gardens. Proposed additions to the current Visual Arts Building help define the use of the large deck overlooking the Transformations project. FAU has approved the concept vision and is actively fundraising for both the Transformations Project and the new Visual Arts building additions.
