Market House is featured in the Spring 2021 issue of Iowa Architect Magazine (page 28). The article touches on the thoughtful contrasts of materiality that was used to create an exterior that is both different from its surroundings, but also complimentary. The five-story mixed-use building is located in the eclectic and historic Northside neighborhood of Iowa City and brings new prominence and vitality to a previously underutilized corner lot.
The impact of murals on architecture and public dialogue (page 10) is also covered in the issue. Located on the north façade of Market House, “Reciprocal of Humanity,” by artists B. Robert Moore and Dana Harrison reflects a message of unity that elevates the lives of Black residents in Iowa, while simultaneously shaping the culture and community of the Northside.
