Design collaboration brings mass timber residence halls to the University of Arkansas

“Working off of a ‘cabin in the woods’ concept, 708-bed Stadium Drive Residence Halls feature fully exposed, locally harvested wood structural elements. The residence halls are a pair of snaking buildings joined in a central plaza, and include classrooms, dining facilities, maker-spaces, performance spaces, administrative offices, and faculty housing.”
