Springfield Art Museum and MSU Ozarks Education Center recipients of AIA Springfield Design Awards
BNIM is honored to celebrate MSU Ozarks Education Center as one of three Honor Award recipients and Springfield Art Museum as one of five Public Recognition Award recipients at the 2020 AIA Springfield Design Awards. Congratulations to BNIM’s fellow award recipients, Dake Wells Architecture, BRP Architecture, patterhn ives, and Arkifex for their honors.
Dedicated to documenting the diverse cultural heritage of the people of southwest Missouri, the Springfield Art Museum collection is housed in an existing 51,000 SF facility. The master plan focused on three areas of study for growth: renovation, replacement, and/or expansion of the existing Education Wing; renovation of the existing building to improve visitor and staff experience; and improvements to the campus to better connect the Museum to surrounding amenities.
The MSU Ozarks Education Center provides a location for education and research by MSU faculty and students, other universities, and non-profit organizations. The project provides one central location to accommodate larger groups with sleeping and bathing quarters, a dining center, classroom space, and room for programs.
