UCF’s Classroom II:

This is a “Call to Artists” for Classroom II at the University of Central Florida. The priority of this building is to provide large classrooms and auditoriums to the campus. It will be a high technology teaching space that services 2000+ students at any given time. It is anticipated that this building will have 15,000 unique visitors each day. The UCF ROTC program will be housed in this building as well. The building will have a courtyard landscaped between the current Classroom Building 1 and this new Classroom Building 2. One section of the building faces the UCF memory mall (a high traffic landscaped area) offering a very strong presence on the UCF campus.

Site for Artwork: Exterior, Rotunda and/or garden courtyard

The Selection Committee has determined that the best location for a sculpture or similar site-specific solution for Classroom II is either the Rotunda and/or the courtyard. Both can be viewed in the attachments. The dimensions for the Rotunda circumference are 17 ft . The courtyard measures approx. 30 ft.
