In 2017, approval was given to launch a new Master of Architecture degree at Indiana University Bloomington. The J. Irwin Miller Architecture program is part of the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture, and Design, and admitted its first cohort of students in fall 2018.
The program’s studios and classrooms are housed in the Republic Building in Columbus, Indiana, a city well known for its modern architecture, and uses Columbus’s historic and robust civic consciousness to integrate architecture, art, and design with the city’s unique public-private coalition process.
In this “living laboratory,” students will make the invisible process of community collaboration visible and concrete by creating a common language for shared problem solving. Public-private fabrication facilities in Columbus also create opportunities for faculty, students, and community to collaborate.
