Photographed in 1995 and February 2010. The building is essentially a rectangle with an open-air courtyard in the center. At its northwest corner, the round structure is a theatre-in-the-round.

 

The building was originally designed for a student cafeteria but by the time of construction it instead served as an industrial arts building (wood shop and metal shop). Later, fine arts were added, and the theatre-in-the-round became a key component of the structure.

 

Originally named after Canadian businessman J. William Horsey, it was rededicated to Lucius Pond Ordway (former president of 3M) on March 9, 1956.

 

The theatre was renovated in 2009 to showcase the original Wright design and color palette. Pictures of the renovated theatre are included on the INTERIORS page.
