Campus Center featured in Educational Interiors Showcase

American School & University’s 14th annual Educational Interiors Showcase named the Dordt College Campus Center as one of the six best student centers/service areas designs for colleges in its August 2004 issue.

The 2004 Educational Interiors Showcase features a collection of school interior designs from nearly 100 assorted projects in fourteen categories ranging from administrative areas to auditoriums, classrooms, and residence halls.

A jury of three architects evaluated educational facility interior design projects based on everything from the design’s performance and sustainability to comfort, adaptability, and timelessness.

The Dordt College Campus Center was designed by Neumann Monson Wictor Architects and was completed in July 2002. Judges commenting on the 104,000 square foot campus center said it truly provides a place for campus interaction. Two other Iowa institutions also had projects named to this year’s Educational Interiors Showcase: University of Iowa’s Currier Residence Hall dining area renovation and University of Dubuque’s Charles C. Myers Library.
