Located bay side of Florida International University, Biscayne Bay Campus, in North Miami Beach, Centrum is the main science building. Centrum embodies the science and aquatic side of the campus, bringing to focus the environmental elements of the campus surroundings and overall Miami ecosystem. The project focuses on sustainability and resiliency as the project grows with the heightening sea level rise. The landscape is altered to bring in more natural filtration with the help of native plant life like live oaks and mangrove forests. The project is a place for students and community members to come and learn about the local environment and ecosystem around them.
