设计 密斯·凡·德·罗；Thomas Phifer and Partners（适应性修改）
2022年2月22日，印第安纳大学Eskenazi艺术、建筑与设计学院院长Peg Faimon宣布由密斯·凡·德·罗设计的学院大楼，将于春季学期向学生、教师和公众开放。该建筑基于密斯1952年的设计而建造，由Thomas Phifer and Partners对其功能进行改造，以适应当代使用：讲座、工作坊、学生合作、行政办公等空间都包括在内。
Peg Faimon, Dean of Indiana University's Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design, today announced that the School's Mies van der Rohe building has opened to students, faculty, and the public for the spring semester. The building, which serves as a shared facility for the School, is the realization of a recently rediscovered 1952 design that Mies created for the Bloomington campus. The design has been sensitively adapted for contemporary use by the architectural team of Thomas Phifer and Partners. Lecture, workshop, student collaboration, administrative and office program spaces are included.
密斯最初是为Pi Lambda Phi兄弟会的印第安纳大学分会而设计的，他们随后放弃了这个项目，该设计也随之被遗忘了大约60年之久。2013年，前兄弟会成员西德尼·埃斯肯纳齐（Sidney Eskenazi）告诉了印第安纳大学时任校长，密斯建筑图纸的存在。校方通过一番找寻，发现了存于芝加哥艺术学院和纽约现代艺术博物馆档案中，有关该项目的资料。2019年，校方宣布将实现密斯这一设计，并将用西德尼和路易斯·埃斯肯纳齐捐赠的2000万美元中的部分资金来支付建设费用。
Originally commissioned for an IU chapter of the Pi Lambda Phi fraternity, which subsequently abandoned the project, the Mies design was all but forgotten for some sixty years. It re-emerged in 2013 when Sidney Eskenazi, a member of the former chapter, informed IU's then-President Michael A. McRobbie of the existence of Mies's drawings for the building. Following a trail of rediscovery, IU found documentation of the project in the archives of the Art Institute of Chicago and New York's Museum of Modern Art. In 2019, IU announced that it would realize the 10,000-square-foot, two-story building, paying for construction with a portion of a $20 million donation from Sidney and Lois Eskenazi.
The 60-foot-wide, 140-foot-long building is made principally of thin, white-painted steel and expansive glass in panes measuring 10 feet square, with select gray limestone and white epoxy terrazzo. Floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the entire second story, which features a central exterior square atrium, giving the impression of transparency throughout the building. Much of the lower level is open to the air, with the second or main story elegantly elevated above the ground plane.
Architecturally, the building has a strong relationship to both the contemporaneous Farnsworth House and the massing and form of many of Mies's early concepts for buildings at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Select furnishings designed by Mies and Florence Knoll, respectively, have been chosen to complement the building's design and era.
Peg Faimon said, "We are thrilled to mark the opening of the Mies Building, which will enable faculty and students of all our School's programs to come together and collaborate. Just as important, this magnificent building shows who we are, representing the excellence to which we are committed. There can be no greater inspiration for us than to learn and work in a masterpiece by this titan of twentieth-century architecture. Let us hope that it will be a lasting monument to the power of collaborations and connections of all kinds—artistic, creative, intellectual and, above all, human."
