Indiana University Starts Construction on Ennead Architects-Designed Building

20 June, 2013

-By Holly O'Dell



Designed by Susan Rodriguez of Ennead Architects, the Global and International Studies Building (GISB) has broken ground at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. A three-story glass atrium will unite the 165,000-square-foot facility’s two Indiana limestone-clad wings while creating a connection between indoors and outdoors. Rodriguez and Joseph Fleischer, who are leading the Ennead design team, specified materials that will integrate with the historic buildings on campus, yet provide a modern aesthetic. Accent stones in myriad colors from around the world emphasize GISB’s global focus.

The $53 million project will house a 150-seat lecture hall, multiple research and language resource centers, student collaboration spaces and faculty offices, more than 50 study rooms, and landscaped exterior grounds with a plaza and meeting terrace. The Ennead team also integrated sustainable principles such as local materials and other LEED benchmarks.

Completion of the building is scheduled for summer 2015.
