Psychological and Brain Sciences Building

The Psychological and Brain Sciences Building holds an important place on the campus of the University of Iowa, serving as a new gateway to the East Campus.  The facility is designed to serve as the new welcoming front door for the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, providing administrative functions, research laboratories, graduate student offices, collaboration space and faculty offices. In addition, the building provides general purpose classroom facilities including active learning classrooms, breakout rooms and learning commons space for studying, gathering and socializing.

The Psychological and Brain Sciences Building establishes a renewed campus presence while maintaining the design context of the surrounding site. The existing facilities did not support the needs of the Psychological and Brains Sciences department, lacking a sense of campus connection and the Human Purposed Integrated Design qualities that are necessary to the practice of Psychology. The introduction of views and generous natural daylight open the building in a transformative way, creating a sense of connection and improving accessibility and wayfinding among different functional spaces to support equity, health, comfort, and well-being.
