Iowa City, Iowa
The Celebration Farm is an event center comprised of two unique barns and an amphitheater situated on five and a half acres of wooded landscape. Completed in 2010, the structure uses innovative wood joinery and heavy timber construction techniques. The 6,000 square foot Double Round barn is oval in shape and features an expansive wood roof structure that allows the floor below to be clear of obstructions. The smaller 2,900 square foot Timber Frame barn is more traditional in shape featuring a double height interior space and mezzanine. Both barns are constructed of recycled wood locally sourced within a 20-mile radius of the site.
