Seminar Buildings (1940), Florida Southern College, Lakeland, Florida


Designed in 1940 and completed in 1941 at a cost of $80,000, the three Seminar Buildings were constructed with student labor. Intended to be used as a series of seminar rooms, the buildings were remodeled and used as business offices. Originally the three separate buildings had open courtyards in between, but the courtyards were glassed in for additional office space.
