IU to build new building for Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design

The IU Board of Trustees voted Friday to approve a new building for the Eskenzai School of Art, Architecture + Design.

According to a press release, the building will be a two-story, 10,000-square-foot facility on the northwest corner of Seventh Street and Jordan Avenue. It will contain space for classrooms, workshops, student collaboration and administration. 

The building is part of a $20 million gift to the school by Sydney and Lois Eskenazi. It is expected to be completed by June 2021, according to the release. 

The design for the building came from a 1952 proposal from modernist architects Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Daniel Brenner. Mies van der Rohe proposed the design in 1952, but the building was never constructed. 

The board also voted to approve the 2020 Repair and Rehabilitation Plan, which covers facility maintenance for all campuses, and the Capital Appropriation Major Repair and Rehabilitation Plan, which covers renovations to IU-Bloomington and IU-Purdue University Indianapolis buildings. 

The next Board of Trustees meeting will be Oct. 4-5 on the IUPUI campus
