Art Studio Overview:

A new garden space has emerged at the prominent south entry to the Iowa State University campus. The Jack Trice Greenspace transforms a portion of the existing football stadium parking into a community gathering area. Entitled the “Lily Pavilion,” the public art integration is a synthesis of art and architecture. Inspired by the cellular patterns found in the Victorian Lily, the structure evokes the simple wonder and elegance of a floating lily pad. The suspended canopy of the pavilion creates a dynamic gathering place where visitors are bathed in a changing play of color, light and shadow.
