GRAND VIEW UNIVERSITY RASMUSSEN CENTER
Des Moines, Iowa

FEH DESIGN developed a design that represents a mix of the old and the new at the Grand View University (GVU) campus. The Rasmussen Center incorporates the stately identifying features of the “Old Main” Humphrey Center with its own state-of-the-art amenities. The Rasmussen Center, located on the very prominent corner of Grandview Avenue and East 14th Street in Des Moines, has become the new gateway to the campus. The 40,000 sf facility houses several GVU academic programs including the following departments: Art and Graphic Design, Education, Psychology, Sociology, History and Political Science. In addition, the building provides space for the University’s Center for Teaching and Learning, the Writing Center and the College for Professional and Adult Learning. A new skywalk connects the Rasmussen Center to the recently completed Student Center and Viking Theatre, projects also designed by FEH DESIGN.
