River’s Edge Pavilion
Seamlessly Blending Building and Landscape
The design of River’s Edge Pavilion sought to blur the edges between infrastructure, landscape and architecture through the sculpting of public space. Conceptualized as a ‘front porch’ for the revitalized riverfront development, the building acts as a continuation of the ribbon of the Bob Kerry pedestrian bridge that leads into the Tom Hanafan inter-state park trail system.
“Our vision - a unique pavilion designed not only to respond to the view opportunities but also blend into the park’s world class landscape design and park features.”
— Larry Foster
Director, Department of Parks, Recreation and Public Property at City of Council Bluffs
The interior contains spaces dedicated to community events, a public-use meeting room, public restrooms and a catering kitchen along with generous outdoor spaces and patios for events and community activities.

Callahan will be joining us for the summer as an interior design intern. She will be entering her senior year at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln pursuing her degree in Interior Design. Remember The Sims video game series? Well, that game provided an initial spark that ignited Callahan’s passion for interior design. When she’s not in the studio, Callahan can be found working out, cooking, dining at her favorite restaurant The Blatt, walking her dogs, or binge-watching Netflix.

Nicci is one of the interior design interns that will be joining us for the summer! She is an interior design student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who will be entering her senior year come fall of 2020. When Nicci isn’t busy laying out spaces, she enjoys time outdoors whether it be running or walking the fields at her family farm with three Australian Shepherds in-toe!

For 30 years, APMA has had the pleasure of working with Martin Kluck. Martin is not only one heck of an architect, but a true friend and role model. It shows in the relationships he has built and nurtured over the years. Martin has made a lasting impression in our hearts and on the landscape of Omaha and Iowa. Congratulations, Martin!
