New building to join award-winning Art Building West

Steven Holl Architects in collaboration with BNIM Architects, has won the commission for the new art studio facility for the University of Iowa Arts Campus beside the Iowa River.

The new building will replace the original 1936 arts building, which was heavily damaged during a flood of the 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.

The selection committee, chaired by University Facilities Management Project Manager Beverly Robalino, chose Steven Holl Architects with BNIM Architects, for their “creativity and attention to complex issues on an exciting but difficult site...”

The University of Iowa is world renowned for its excellence in the tutelage of writing, theater, painting, printing and book-making, music, and dance.

The new building is currently undergoing design development.
