Long Description:

An extensive building program laid out by the college, and designs for twelve units, connected by gardens and courts, have been made by Frank Lloyd Wright, one of the most individual of American architects. --- Florida: Guide to the Southernmost State, Pg. 517

If only the authors knew the lasting impact Frank Lloyd Wright would have on both the campus of this college (Florida Southern College) and the entire world of architecture. The above coordinates are for the Water Dome, which is near the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel (which was the first completed building). Students of the college helped to build these wonderful designs of Frank Lloyd Wright. I have uploaded a video of the Water Dome for your enjoyment.

Please park in marked visitor parking, or along Johnson Avenue, on the west side of campus. Walking tour brochures with maps are available here: N28° 01.913, W81° 56.955.
