Genus is honored to be recognized in the 2022 Iowa ASLA Awards for our work on the Des Moines Catholic Pastoral Center in Des Moines. Designed by well-known modern architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in the 1960’s, the primary goal of this project was to rehabilitate the historically significant plaza while respecting the original design intent. Now home to Catholic Pastoral Center, the site is deemed a Local Landmark since early 1990’s by the Des Moines City Council and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places [ NRHP ].
