The Faculty Studio Building
The 85,000-square-foot Indiana University Jacobs School of Music Studio Building will provide technologically and acoustically superior teaching and practice spaces to rival the facilities of any music school or conservatory in the world. Located at the northeast corner of Third Street and Jordan Avenue on the IU Bloomington campus, the Studio Building will mark the entrance to the university’s music and performing arts district.
This new structure will provide studio space with excellent acoustics and state-of-the-art wiring and technology, as well as more and larger practice and rehearsal rooms. The building will contain 84 studios for faculty and associate instructors as well as classrooms, administrative offices, graduate student spaces, mechanical support space, and a faculty lounge.
Also included in this construction project is an addition to the west side of the Musical Arts Center of approximately 20,000 square feet. It will consist of three large rehearsal rooms, a storage area, an audio control room, music technical shops, and common spaces.
The entire project is funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc.
