Unusual Staircase in the Christoverson Humanities Building at Florida Southern College

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

This is the last view of Florida Southern College in Lakeland.  Most the walls in the Christoverson Humanities building are not at a 90 degree angle.  This stairway must have been challenging as I have never seen one similar.  It is not circular or straight or normal in any way.

Here we are in the main glassed in hall of the Christoverson Building at Florida Southern College in Lakeland.  This overhanging “V” shape was interesting but when I went up there it was just offices.

We have walked down the hallway of the Christoverson Humanities building at FSC in Lakeland and find this spacious hall with a huge window overlooking the lake.  There is a stone floor and large oriental rug.  This would be good space for an inside concert or orchestra even.

This building at Florida Southern College was fortunately open so I took some photographs of the inside. It was spacious and clean and well lit. Here is the main hallway as we enter the side door:

The last building we see at the Florida Southern College Campus directly overlooks the water on a hill.  The sunset is directly behind us and we are looking directly at the building again with a larger than life swooping extended roofline. It has massive steel frames supporting it all with expansive glass walls.

We are nearing our end of the tour of the Florida Southern College Campus (FSC) in Lakeland Florida.  We are walking down toward the lake at the bottom of the hill and come across this modern perhaps Frank Lloyd Wright inspired building.  It is called the Wynee Warden Dance Studio.

Palm Trees and Sunset at Florida Southern College

The sun is very low here at Florida Southern College (FSC) and making shadows from the palm trees on the brick buildings.  I liked these buildings as they were classical with their arched entryways and brick construction.  The metal roof is clean and nice.  This is a very pretty campus and even non- Frank Lloyd Wright buildings like this are nice.

Classic Building at Florida Southern College

This image or a classical styled building at Florida Southern College is actually a stitched panorama or a a few views.  I really liked the complex windows that were arched and the dentile molding at the top where the roof joins the wall.  The setting sun caused the mottled effect on the walls

Here we are still on our tour of the Florida Southern College campus and now we will look at some of the non- Frank Lloyd Wright architecture.  After visiting the Planetarium, I wandered around the nearby greenhouse and found this reflecting pool.  It is called a Garden of Meditation and is high up on a hill overlooking the lake near the campus.  The sun was nearly set below the horizon here.

We enter one of the large Florida Southern College’s buildings designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and find it has a central courtyard. It slopes dramatically.  The stairs seem to disappear into the central grass sloped area.
