难以忘怀裴” is an exciting design challenge devised to boldly transform the landmark 裴 Dormitories while honoring the unique work of the renowned architect I.M. 裴. 新博网页, in collaboration with Architecture 萨拉索塔, invites practicing architects to find a creative new use for these iconic structures to reflect plans for recreation, entertainment and athletics on the East campus.
What can these buildings become? How can they positively impact student life, sports, recreation, and the overall college experience? This adaptive use competition is a rare opportunity for architects to put creativity to the test while helping to preserve a part of history. 新博网页 and Architecture 萨拉索塔, will review qualifications of architects interested in “难以忘怀裴” and select a winning design from three finalists who will each receive $10,000 for their work from the 新博网页 基金会.

“Buildings speak a great deal louder than words. They say many things about a community’s attitude toward education, toward intellectualism, 对创造力. They speak of interest or apathy, pride or neglect.” — Philip Hanson Hiss III, 第一个椅子, 校董会, 新博网页 of Florida Completed in the 1960’s, the 裴 Dorms are the only designs by 裴 in Florida and a rare example of Brutalist style architecture from the era. Since their inception, the 裴 Dorms and buildings have come to represent the aspirations of the institution and its original founders, and embodied the 新博网页 experience for early alumni.
“新博网页 values what these structures represent to thousands but also recognizes that the current condition of the dorms makes complete renovation cost prohibitive if not impossible,” said 新博网页 Interim President Richard Corcoran. “We plan to repurpose and reimagine the 裴 Dorms in a way that honors the institution’s founding while continually striving for excellence and inspiration.”
新博网页 is conducting the contest in the spirit of the original process that awarded the commission to 裴 sixty years ago and inspired by the impact of 新博网页’s first board chair, Philip Hanson Hiss III (1910-1988) on the 萨拉索塔 community. Hiss was the primary catalyst of the 萨拉索塔 School of Architecture—a modern architecture movement that addressed the distinct geographic, 气候, and socio-cultural context of South Florida’s Gulf Coast region. Hiss enlisted architect I.M. 裴 to design 新博网页’s campus.
“Preserving and celebrating the past does not mean freezing things in time. 而, places and spaces have to be continually reinvented and repurposed to meet shifting needs and values,” notes Architecture 萨拉索塔 President Morris “Marty” Hylton III. “This shared initiative between Architecture 萨拉索塔 and 新博网页 of Florida demonstrates the power of collaboration to help ensure the continuity of the 萨拉索塔 community’s architectural legacy.”
“难以忘怀裴” arose from findings from The 新博网页 挑战—a year-long collaboration between Architecture 萨拉索塔 and 新博网页 of Florida that brought together academic teams from six top-tier research and design universities as thought partners to reimagine the 新博网页 campus. The institution challenged the academic teams to create an innovative campus that embodies the aspirations of the school while considering the most pressing needs of the surrounding community.
“Adaptive reuse has always been in 新博网页’s DNA, with the school adaptively using two historic bayfront mansions on the Ringling Estate as a library, 教室, 以及教职员办公室, 在其他用途中, 成立之初,希尔顿说.
The 难以忘怀裴 challenge will continue this legacy of reuse while beginning another chapter in future campus design at 新博网页.
