Maurizio Maso, AIA (American Institute of Architects)
Vice President of Hunton Brady
´Hunton Brady Architects was established in 1947 in Orlando, Florida, by Robert Murphy, a Harvard-educated modern architect from Charleston, South Carolina. His integrity and talent were embraced by subsequent partners who joined the firm. The firm has grown along with Central Florida. The firm has designed over 5,500,000 square feet of classroom and related space for state/community colleges and universities including Valencia College. They are considered the educational design go-to experts for student service facilities, workforce development centers, allied health facilities and laboratory and technology buildings. The hallmark of a Hunton Brady education facility is a building designed to cultivate learning, enhance student and faculty exchange and inspire those who enter.
´Mr. Maso will discuss the thinking and guiding principles for designing the original campus plan. What type of learning environment were they hoping to create? What kind of challenges did they encounter? What would they do differently in hindsight? How would they approach building a new campus in present times?
