The Visual Arts Building at the University of Iowa, designed by Steven Holl Architects in partnership with BNIM, will open on October 7, 2016. The new state of the art facility provides 126,000 square feet of loft-like space for all visual arts media, as well as galleries, faculty offices, an outdoor rooftop studio, and teaching spaces for Art History. The building is designed to encourage collaboration between all arts disciplines.
The North Kansas City School District selected BNIM’s multidisciplinary team of architects, planners, landscape architects, and interior designers to transform its beloved Northtown High School into an innovative, modern learning environment. To create an educational experience that supports the next generation of students, the new North Kansas City High School will be deeply rooted in pedagogy, flexibility, and sustainability.

The school will also receive large-scale infrastructural updates in an effort to create equitable campus facilities, spaces and resources, as compared to similar-scale regional and district high schools.
