It was the Des Moines, IA. Public Library for years. They built a newer bigger one. This was renovated and is now the World Food Prize Headquarters.

Beautiful!!! They deserve a pat on the back for the refurb. I'm originally from south of Detroit, it's terrible how many old buildings are just rotting away there, very sad, really.
Being, among other things, a General Contractor, I can really appreciate what they did.

That's an absolutely gorgeous old building!

The former library, not the pile of kindling.
