MTLSS Research Complex

Master planning and architectural design for marine science and atmospheric research complex

Cambridge Seven Associates designed the new 75,000-square-foot Marine Technology and Life Sciences Seawater (MTLSS) Research Complex for the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami. This unique facility, designed to achieve LEED Gold certification, serves as a new gateway to the campus and is the cornerstone for the entire RSMAS master plan, also completed by C7A. The MTLSS Complex houses two distinct but interconnected components: the Marine Life Science Center and the SUrge-STructure-Atmosphere INteraction (SUSTAIN) research facility. The SUSTAIN lab features two state of the art wave and wind tanks for modeling hurricane conditions, allowing researchers to model currents, winds, subsurface conditions, and other environmental conditions.
