University of Iowa School of Art and Art History


Designed by well known Architect Stephen Holl, the new School of Art and Art History at the University of Iowa is a hybrid instrument of open edges and open center; instead of an object, the building is a “formless” instrument. Implied rather than actual volumes are outlined in the disposition of spaces. Flat or curved planes are slotted together or assembled with hinged sections. Flexible spaces open out from studios in warm weather. The main horizontal passages are meeting places with interior glass walls that reveal work-in-progress. from wikipedia.
