Rendering and Model
 
 

A. Lawrence Kocher, architect
Model and Plan for a Lake Eden Campus

The plan shows (1) the foundation floor with the art room (shops) and the open area and  (2) the intermediate floor (first floor). Clockwise, the wing on the left was to provide studies, classrooms, offices, and exhibition space; the next, administration; the third, a library and exhibition hall; and the fourth, student studies, space for workshops and art classes, and faculty apartments. Of the four wings, only the Studies Wing was constructed.

Note: The photograph of the model has been deliberately inverted to conform to the plan.
