The Powell family in collaboration with PNCA is set to build ArtHouse, a new PNCA student community project on the Powell-owned property adjacent to the North Park Blocks. PNCA’s enrollment has doubled since 2004 to nearly 600 students and is expected to reach 1000 by 2018. The 7-story, 55,000 square feet building, in the location of the former Powell’s Technical Books, will operate as art on different scales: from building as art, designed by Thomas Robinson, to spaces that showcase art, to places to make art. The building is planned for the Fall 2013 class.
