Summer 2012 Road Trip – Stop #5 CEDAR RAPIDS, IA

Stop Five – Cedar Rapids, IA

226 Miles = 4.6 gallons of gas

Leaving Chicago, the map and a hankering for sustainability led our road-trippers to Iowa, a land flowing with wind, bountiful farmland, honest people and great architecture. The one piece of architecture they were after: The Hotel at Kirkwood Center in Cedar Rapids. This establishment stands out as an educational center for the students of Kirkwood College studying hospitality and culinary arts and a pioneer in sustainability. They have taken every initiative in making the building a leader in the hospitality industry and in the green initiative. Cladding Corp was able to team up with OPN Architects of Cedar Rapids for the noble project. We helped them achieve these energy-saving goals by outfitting the hotel in a Terra5rainscreen that was right up their alley.
