Abstract

Iowa City's 14-story Plaza Towers is an innovative variation on the block and tower parti that has prevailed in large American cities for over a century. By permitting its block to address the public while its tower addresses the private, it masterfully resolves the difficult issues of a 21st-century development in a 19th-century Midwestern town.
