Hub Plaza Improvements

Iowa State University

In response to growing needs for outdoor space and an existing underutilized plaza that was beyond its life expectancy, Bolton & Menk designed a new outdoor plaza for The Hub, an important component to the Central Campus of Iowa State University. The Hub is a historic building in the heart of Iowa State University that serves thousands of users on a daily basis. This building serves as a dining area and coffee shop for students and staff alike. As part of the courtyard improvements, high quality materials were selected to lessen maintenance needs and fit the surroundings of the Central Campus. Bolton & Menk designers worked with the University to develop a barrier free, aesthetically pleasing extension of The Hub that will serve as a social crossroads of the community for decades to come.
