University of Miami Rosenstiel School

Marine Technology Sciences Seawater Research Building - Miami, FL

    Project Overview

    The Marine Technology Life Sciences Seawater (MTLSS) Research Building is a marine life science center that serves as a new gateway to the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science campus and the cornerstone for the entire master plan.

    The unique science taught within this facility requires very interactive and technologically advanced teaching classrooms and extremely flexible student support and study spaces.

    That's why this facility houses seawater laboratories and multidisciplinary research facilities which includes an 8,520 square-foot Surge-Structure-Atmosphere Interaction (SUSTAIN) research facility to study the physics and dynamics of hurricanes. This is the only facility in the world capable of generating hurricane force winds in a three-dimensional test environment.

    The facility also includes a 47,942 square-foot Marine Life Science Center (MLSC) to support research in the areas of coral reef biology, aquaculture, fisheries, biological oceanography, and marine biomedical science.
