Here, architecture serves as a gateway the gardens. A thoughtfully designed built environment compliments the garden functions with a structure that recalls the scale, materials and construction used throughout the planted areas. This immediately engages visitors to the grounds.
The Education Building provides space for the ISU Horticulture Extension Service, a multi-purpose meeting room and a garden reception area. A new campanile and garden maintenance building are integrated into the project as well, further enhancing the gardens as a four-season destination.
