Dublin-based Grafton Architects will be building the Anthony Timberlands Center for Design and Materials Innovation in the city of Fayetteville, having won the competition organized by the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas. Drawn up in collaboration with the local firm Modus Studio, the scheme submitted by the Irish practice of Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara – winners of the 2020 Pritzker Prize – was selected over the proposals of the other five teams shortlisted: Dorte Mandrup (Copenhague), Kennedy & Violich Architecture (Boston), Lever Architecture (Portland), Shigeru Ban Architects (Tokio), and WT/GO Architecture (New Haven).
The wooden building, with its roofs pitched in zigzags, is to be a hub for initiatives in timber and wood design and construction, and will be the partnerships' first building in the United States.
