Polk Stanley Wilcox Receives National Award for Library Design

1 min read

Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects’ design of the Hillary Rodham Clinton Children’s Library and Learning Center in Little Rock has been honored in the American Institute of Steel Construction’s annual awards.

The Chicago institute announced during its 2016 conference in Orlando, Florida, that 10 building projects from around the country earned awards in the 2016 Innovative Design in Engineering and Architecture with Structural Steel awards program.

An award presentation will be scheduled for this summer at the library in Little Rock. A panel of design and construction professionals identified National and Merit Awards in three categories, based on constructed value.

“This library’s meaning can be seen in the faces of the children – their excitement and wonder, and hopeful smiles that say their future can be limitless with the right opportunities,” said design architect Reese Rowland. “Some of those opportunities involve teaching simple life skills that build confidence, while others focus on technology not available in the home.”

East Harding Construction of Little Rock was the general contractor, while Engineering Consultants Inc. of Little Rock served as structural engineer for the project.

This is the fourth AISC National Award for Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects, with the others being awarded for the CALS Arkansas Studies Institute in Little Rock, the El Dorado Conference Center and Heifer International’s World Headquarters in Little Rock, which also won the American Institute of Architects National Institute Honor Award.
