Urbanism at UM

This photo is taken tonight inside the Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center of the School of Architecture of the University of Miami. This is in the UM's main campus in Coral Gables. This lecture hall is a study of the new urbanism in person. The circular seatings for students have individual lighting with power supplies and network connections for laptops. The vertical columns with circular orifices disguise the air conditioning apparatus. The acoustics is superb and faculty members delivering lectures have a complete suite of multimedia equipment at their disposition. Very impressive.
