“Entrepreneur Jim Karp believes commerce and culture can — and should — co-exist. Working with award-winning architect Kulapat Yantrasast, Karp is in the final weeks of completing his America Place headquarters in River Ridge Commerce Center.
“Karp opened the doors to his new America Place headquarters for a sneak peak on Wednesday…
“Yantrasast was present when America Place opened its doors briefly for the event and tour of his masterpiece. ‘I love art,’ he said, ‘and we need a relationship with our office spaces that goes beyond just working in them. I think we have achieved this at America Place.’
During the sneak peek, Speed Museum Director Stephen Reily interviewed Yantrasast and Karp so that attendees could hear the story of how the idea for the building emerged and how it meets Karp’s goal of bringing culture and commerce together.”
