Little Rock architecture firm Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects has been awarded the American Architecture Award for its design of the Heifer International Murphy Kelley Education Center in Little Rock.
"This recognition is proof that good design matters, and can contribute to getting an organization like Heifer's message out into the public eye, which is critical for their humanitarian efforts," said Reese Rowland, the project's principal architect. "We are also excited to bring more national exposure to downtown Little Rock as well."
The building is one of 46 chosen this year out of the nearly 1,000 projects that were considered. This is the third award the firm has won in the last five years, with the other two being for Little Rock's Acxiom Data Center and Heifer International headquarters.
Winners are selected by the Chicago Athenaeum, which consists of the Museum of Architecture & Design, the European Centre for Architecture Art Design & Urban Studies and the Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd.
