The rendering shows the Studies Building, the only wing constructed.

The four wings of the building complex designed by Kocher would have provided for (1) administration (the wing to the left of the entrance, (2) an exhibition hall and library, (3) a studies wing with student and faculty studies, a classroom, two faculty apartments, an art room, and an open studio space, (4) a wing with "conversation rooms," exhibition space, student studies, and a faculty apartment, and (5) a central hexagonal gathering hall. The building was designed to take advantage of views to the lake.
