Key American Architectural + Property Developments – Built Environment USA
We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Iowa Building Developments, Brasil. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across the state. The focus is on contemporary Iowa buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.

Iowa State University Graduate Design Students Shelters for US Soldiers
Graduate design students at Iowa State University have created conceptual schemes for shelters that would house US soldiers fighting in Afghanistan and help give them a sense of safety.
The schemes were produced as part of a new studio called In Harm’s Way, led by Lee Cagley, a professor and chair of the school’s interior design department.

University of Iowa
The School of Art & Art History at the University of Iowa, which opened in September 2006, was awarded in the RIBA International Awards for successfully negotiating its site at the crossing of two orthogonal paths in the campus, at a place where the city grid is interrupted by natural landscape in the form of a small lagoon and a limestone bluff. The jury writes “This engagement with the conditions of the elements of the site is one of the scheme’s most striking aspects. It feels like this would be a very good place in which to make and study art.”
