BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - The new home of Indiana University’s art school will be modelled after an unbuilt fraternity house a famed modernist architect designed in the 1950s.

IU’s trustees recently approved construction of the $10 million Mies van der Rohe Building.

When completed in 2021, it will bring the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture and Design’s programs together within one building.

The Herald-Times reports the 10,000-square-foot structure will be made of limestone, steel and glass, with second-floor windows spanning floor to ceiling.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was a German-born architect known for his “less is more” approach emphasizing open space and industrial materials. He designed a fraternity house for Phi Lambda Phi in the early 1950s, but it went unbuilt.

The new building will be similar to his design, with modern upgrades.
