The progress on the University of Iowa's largest flood recovery project, Hancher, is evident when you drive along Park Road on the north end of the UI campus. Iowa Now provides you with intimate glimpses of the work done over the past few months.
Hancher is being built at a level 7 feet above the 500-year flood level. The project will include a large 1,900-seat, multi-purpose proscenium theater, front of house and back of house support spaces, rehearsal room, and administrative offices. School of Music program space—including the scene shop, costume shop, recording studio, and performing arts production offices—will also be included in the replacement building.
