|Fay Jones School of Architecture – University of Arkansas
When the university was granted $10 million to update the School of Architecture, it came with a very tight schedule, requiring initial plans to be submitted within weeks. With the limited amount of time available, school leaders turned to its own architectural department.

By fusing the old structure with the new wing, the distinct architectural languages and building methods are made clear. The building has new studio, classroom, and administrative spaces, and also features a 200-seat auditorium, model shops, a gallery, and a rooftop terrace. In addition to the architecture department, the building houses the landscape and interior design departments. Completed in August 2013, the overall project was 90,955 square feet and cost $32.4 million.
