Selected from 69 submissions from 10 countries, six international firms were shortlisted for the design competition of the future Anthony Timberlands Center for Design and Materials Innovation at the University of Arkansas. Planned as an extension of the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design and as a key part of the university’s Windgate Art and Design District, the research center will house the school’s emerging graduate program in timber and wood design. Moreover, it will include multiple timber and wood design initiatives and fabrication technologies laboratories.
