Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University has been deemed the "Harvard of the Sky" by TIME magazine. As the largest aviation and aerospace university in the world, it welcomes over 6,000 students from across the globe and dates back to 1965. Its Daytona Beach campus spans 185 acres and is located adjacent to the Daytona Beach International Airport, providing ideal support for flight training, research, and partnerships with industry.
With a modern design, ERAU aimed to make a striking impression on prospective students, alumni, and donors. The design team incorporated elements of flight with sleek curves and wings, and the interior floor pattern reflects fluid dynamics used in aerospace engineering. The building features timeless durable materials such as concrete, exposed screeds, white metal panels, and reflective glass.
Not only is the building beautiful, but it is also highly functional. The southern part houses administrative offices, a boardroom, a guest room, and meeting space for board members, donors, and dignitaries. Meanwhile, the northern part of the building includes a multifunctional room that comes equipped with a movable wall to accommodate various guests.
Moreover, the center features an interactive exhibit of ERAU's projects, history and frames a Campus Legacy Walk, a wide boardwalk that runs through the heart of campus to the institution's flight line at Daytona Beach International Airport. The walk immortalizes the history of flight, and it runs directly to the front door of the university.
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is a leader in aviation and aerospace, providing not only excellent education but also a breathtaking and functional space conducive to learning and building partnerships.
