Introducing the BNIM mindful podcast
BNIM is excited to share our new BNIM mindful podcast, a space for collaborative dialogues and discovery where we explore design and its connection to climate, community, and human experience. In each podcast, team members from across BNIM and our network will be hosting mindful conversation and design thinking to talk through some of Architecture and Design’s complex and important topics. 

In recognition of Earth Day in April, BNIM’s Director of Sustainability and Regenerative Design, Jeremy Knoll, hosted the first episode of the BNIM mindful | Earth Series. The two-part episode explores topics including Greenhouse Gas Protocol standards, Scope 1, 2, and 3 emissions, BNIM’s 2023 Earth Day commitment, offset markets, and ESG principles.

Recognized among the leading international design projects that are moving our world toward a more sustainable future, the Tom and Ruth Harkin Center has received the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design's 2023 GREEN GOOD DESIGN® Award. 
As a new dedicated office, research space, center for community engagement, and model for inclusive design, the Tom and Ruth Harkin Center  engages the campus community in a dialogue of equity and empathy. Informed by guiding design principles categorized into Generous Space, Equitable Use, Individual Empowerment, and a Clear Path, the project aims to expand the industry's definition of sustainable design to encompass equity and inclusion.  M O R E

Sam Nordmeyer, an architectural designer at BNIM, was recently awarded an AIA Iowa Impact Award at this year’s Annual Spring Conference. The award recognizes architects, designers, and other collaborators on architectural projects that directly benefit social, humanitarian, community, or environmental causes.
Sam received an honorable mention in the student work category for the College of Design Greenhouse project, completed while he was a student at Iowa State University and a collaborator with Whitehead Design Workshop. The project was praised by the jury for its thoughtful design proposal and for addressing the important challenge of food insecurity. The jury also commended the research, analysis, and careful drawings of the project. M O R E
