Lots of hidden treasures to be found on East Main Street in Columbus! We’re excited to be kicking off a Nation Register Nomination project in the area along with our four Historic Tax Credit projects that are already in process. #historicpreservation #designinglocal #nationalregister
Really, really impressed by the fantastic pedestrian bridges in Downtown Des Moines.  The Women of Achievement Bridge is an amazing arch suspension bridge with two separate decks.  The Des Moines Union Railway Bridge is an excellent and creative example of infrastructure adaptive reuse.

In Des Moines this week for the National Alliance of Preservation Commissions (NAPC) conference.  Got a chance to visit the amazing Pappajohn Sculpture Park.  A great example of public art and civic space working together to create a sense of place and encourage infill development.
