Architectural Photography at the East Side Recycling Center

 It has been said by the Iowa City mayor Matt Hayek that "The East Side Recycling Center serves as an example to the community as to how a public building should be constructed and operated."  The project was designed by Shive Hattery Architects and Engineers and all 40 of the subcontractors were Iowa based companies .  The building features many modern green/sustainable features like biocells, permeable paving, and rain gardens.
 The building will also host many educational events and programs for children and adults alike.  It will be available by appointment and has already been very busy hosting events like school classes and field trips and meetings about sustainable landscaping techniques.  The city is planning to apply for a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating of platinum which is the best rating possible.
