Arts and Sciences Building
Responding to an expanding student enrollment, the joint campus of Indiana University Northwest and Ivy Tech Community College engaged Moody Nolan to design a new state-of-the-art academic facility to replace the outdated Tamarack Hall. The result is a new multi-disciplinary building that merges two academic cultures into one 133,000 sq. ft. building. Housed within the facility is a 500-seat theater, fine arts spaces, science classrooms and laboratories, general academic classrooms, administrative offices and a large informal study lounge to accommodate both schools.
The building is composed of large interlocking masses that relate program elements to the campus and community context. The elongated western building façade is broken down through massing and rhythmic patterns that have a direct relationship to the programs they contain. The façade announces this building as a gateway piece for all new campus growth in the community.
The project received LEED Silver certification.
