New Arts Building at UI

Steven Holl Architects, in collaboration with Bnim Architects, has won the commission for the new art studio facility for the University of Iowa (UI) Arts campus.

The new building is to replace an original arts building from 1936, which was heavily damaged during a flood of the University of Iowa campus in June 2008.

The proposed site is directly adjacent to and northwest of the Art Building West, designed by Steven Holl Architects, which since its opening in 2006 has received numerous awards, including the AIA 2007 Institute Honor Award for Architecture (see «CASABELLA» 749, November 2006, p. 58).
