MODIS BUILDING (Formerly Independent Square)
This building occupies a full block on the St. John's River in downtown Jacksonville. The main feature of the building is a 4 story atrium filled with tropical vegetation, located at the base for the public.
One specific purpose of the design was to become an image for the company. The concept of the sloping base and the larger corner frames provides a distinctive image not only for the company, but also as an identifying landmark for the city of Jacksonville.
