Iowa State Laboratory Facilities, Ankeny, IA
Sliding glass panels inspired by glass microscope slides carry images from the 4 laboratory departments which share this facility, magnifying their work and juxtaposing them. Behind the sliding panels are images of Iowa's landscape from the nearby area. Three main areas in the triangular shaped lobby are treated, two are approximately 20' wide x 10' high (one is broken into 2 parts), the third is approximately 6.5' wide x 10' high. There are 16 total sliding panels and 22 stationary landscape panels.
2 x 10 ft x 20 ft, 1x 10 ft x 6 ft 6 in.
