“As a builder with an Architectural background, I understand the challenges students face and know the importance of real world experience. Buildworks and South Florida are both beneficiaries of a highly skilled work force, and we are thrilled to be a founding sponsor of the Architectural Research Collaborative. I view this as a natural extension of our constant commitment to building a better Miami and our continued support of FIU and the Miami Beach Urban Studios, ” - Joey Woodworth
