The design of the Holmes county arts center emerged from the union of programatic boxes and perforation of iconic figures seen in the rural landscape. The barns, silos, farmhouses and sheds in combination with the boxes lead to the creation of interesting spaces. These interior spaces reveal figures which resemble the farm icons. The fusion of these forms allowed for the development and organization of the building’s program. The lobby divides the visual and performing art rooms from the sports and wellness center. The many rooms wrap around a central courtyard where activities such as theatrical plays and gardening take place. The geometric shapes seen throughout the landscape are a reflection of the interior spaces of the building.
