The Martin C. Jischke Honors Building is a 9,000 square foot building housing the Iowa State University Honors Program. Named after our former University president, the main floor is dedicated to student oriented activities and includes two flexible classrooms, a project room, a 12-station computer lab, a resource room/kitchenette and a two-story lounge/meeting area. The 2,000 square foot second floor overlooks the lounge area below and provides administrative offices for the program. The building was designed by Architects Smith Metzger of Des Moines, Iowa. It is situated near central campus amidst several mature and unique trees, including notable species of Japanese lilacs, hackberry and Chinkapin oak. Constructed primarily of red brick on a stone base, the building is fashioned in the prairie style with strong horizontal lines emphasized by a low roof and broad overhangs. The interior spaces are naturally lit with high clerestory windows and generous picture windows that embrace southwesterly views of central campus. This model was completed by Andrew Temeyer.
