In July 2017, APTCP held its annual meeting and social in Des Moines, IA. This was a first for APTCP and we were thrilled to visit the great state of Iowa!
We started the day with a tour of the American Enterprise Group's Headquarters. The building was designed by Gordon Bunshaft with SOM and completed in 1964. Recent renovations were completed by the architecture firm BNIM and the General Contractor Ryan Companies, Baker Group and Baker Electric, and Design Engineers. We were pleased to see this DoCoMoMo award winning project.
Our final stop of the day was to get a tour of the in-progress renovation of the historic Des Moines City Hall. Attendess were in awe of the decorative finishes and plaster throughout this stunning building.
We wrapped the day with dinner and drinks at Magnolia Wine Kitchen in the Western Gateway section of Des Moines.
