- Florida Polytechnic University - Building 555 - This building is an architectural feat, with vertical columns that bring in light and reflects water from surrounding ponds. It's operable roof is made of 94 aluminum louvers that flap to create shade. The design allows for an energy efficient building. Unique to this building is the HVAC ventilation system, which is a displacement ventilation design.
