COLUMBUS -

Indiana University now has a new place to house a newly-named degree program. The IU Foundation has purchased the former Republic Newspaper building in Columbus to house its new Master of Architecture degree program. 

The program is based in the School of Art, Architecture + Design at IU Bloomington, and will be now be named in honor of Columbus-native J. Irwin Miller, who was instrumental in helping his hometown showcase its modern architecture. The nationally recognized building sits at 333 Second Street and was named a historic landmark in 2012. The school will occupy the building beginning in August. 

"The historic Republic Newspaper building, itself a structure that embodies excellence in design and which is situated in the heart of one of the nation's most architecturally important cities, where architectural masterpieces are part of the fabric of everyday life, is a perfect home for Indiana University's new J. Irwin Miller Architecture Program," IU President Michael McRobbie said.  "The program will help meet the considerable national and local need for professional architects and designers,"  "Here in Indiana alone, the need for architects is projected to grow by 15 percent over the next decade. And it is a further step in IU's broader efforts to build a culture of 'building and making' at the university to help develop innovations and inventions that contribute to local, state and national economic development."

The Columbus Community Education Coalition will raise funds to renovate the building, which was designed by architect Myron Goldsmith in the 1960's."The Indiana University architecture program and the acquisition and refurbishment of this building fits perfectly with our vision for Columbus," said Columbus Mayor Jim Lienhoop. "We have a vision of excellence, and IU places excellence in everything it does. We are glad to see IU expand in our community."
