The Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas is complex but resolute hybrid, combining the restoration of historic Vol Walker Hall, the original campus library, and the modern addition of the Steven L. Anderson Design Center. For the first time, the Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Interior Design programs will be located in the same building with room to grow. 13,000 square feet of library stack spaces located on the west side of Vol Walker Hall were removed in order to make a seamless connection to the addition and allow circulation along the main campus axis. The new entry is inviting and fully accessible for students and faculty of all disciplines, leading to an exhibition gallery and integral displays along the central axis. The addition also makes Vol Walker Hall fully accessible for the first time. New twin stairwells are located between the restoration and addition, connecting old and new and delivering daylight and activity into the center of the building. Before the transformation, the central gallery did not function well due to poor light and acoustic quality. By correcting these problems through careful detailing, a central gathering space was created to unite old and new, focused around an oculus that provides daylight. Studio and critique spaces are provided throughout the addition, as well as new 200 seat auditorium that descends to become visible from the sidewalks nearby. The roof terrace in the addition features a green roof for instruction and views to the Boston Mountains. Architectural concrete and Indiana limestone cladding give the addition weight and substance that honors its historic counterpart. A fritted glass brise soleil screens the intense western sunlight, while the custom curtain wall is used to illustrate construction methods, detailing, and environmental strategies.
