University of Iowa, Iowa City, IO / John Pappajohn Business Building, Henry B. Tippie College of Business
Inspired by the nearby 1846 gold-domed, neo-classic Iowa State Capitol Building at the center of the University’s campus, the Pappajohn Business Building is a modern interpretation of classic form. The new four-story building has been designed to encourage students and faculty to interact both inside and outside of class and to build relationships that extend the process of education beyond the classroom.
Fourteen tiered interactive case-study classrooms, 400-seat and 160-seat auditoria and two atrium-style Colloquium suites offer full audio/visual connectivity and flexibility for lectures, seminars, and discussion groups. The University’s 50,000-volume business library provides an additional 300 study stations and ten small-group study rooms adjacent to a large 100-workstation computer lab. State-of-the-art communications technology and flexible teaching spaces connect students and faculty to the global community, creating a model for teaching business in the 21st century.
