RDG Dahlquist Art Studio is a creative and collaborative environment. The outcome of which is a thoughtful integration of art into public and private spaces within building architecture and the landscape. Our work depends upon many different elements, orchestrated in a way in which the public is welcomed into and moved by the experience. Through a process that combines research and discovery with insight and experimentation, we design and create memorable destinations and exciting new places.

The RDG Dahlquist Art Studio is located in an area of Downtown Des Moines which is evolving from warehouse and light industrial uses to a mix of commercial and residential uses. In 2016, the Studio relocated from the historic Art 316 building – now one of two buildings that comprise the Harbach Lofts - to a nearby building which allowed all of our office, design, and fabrication space to exist on one level in a modern facility, while giving us the ability to work at large scale in a variety of media.
