Iowa Utilities Board Office of Consumer Advocate Office Building in Des Moines, Iowa, USA by BNIM

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

Article source: BNIM

Located within the State of Iowa Capitol Complex, this project is an infill development on the 6-acre site of a former landfill. As a gateway to the complex at its Southeast corner, the project is a figural and literal threshold to the powerful example of government — supported by location and by its demonstration of replicable strategies for performance and savings. It further proves that the challenge of elegant design and exemplary performance can be solved even within limited budgets.
