Originally constructed as a laboratory school in 1935, the new College of Education at Indiana State University was renovated to once again serve students. The university had three primary goals for the site: to promote teaching and learning, encourage accidental interaction, and respect its architectural roots. Schmidt Associates honored these goals by creating flexible learning classrooms, seminar spaces, libraries, and faculty offices to encourage teaching and learning. Outside, a pedestrian plaza with informal gathering nodes was constructed to encourage accidental interaction on campus. The existing masonry in the interior atrium design was reused, paying homage to the building’s history. This historic building was transformed into a flexible learning space that promotes community, public outreach, interaction, and incidental learning, while honoring its architectural roots.
