The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design has announced the winners of 2022 Green GOOD DESIGN® Awards for Adohi Hall University of Arkansas and Anonymous Hall Dartmouth College. These projects were selected among 160 products and projects around the world.
“Now in turn and in 2022, GREEN GOOD DESIGN‘s goal is to bestow international recognition to those outstanding individuals, companies, organizations, governments, and institutions – together with their products, services, programs, ideas, and concepts-that have forwarded exceptional thinking and inspired greater progress toward a more healthier and more sustainable universe.”
Adohi Hall, a 708-bed, 200,000sf student housing complex at the University of Arkansas, demonstrates a pioneering use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) and an innovative approach to live-learn communities, with embedded arts and academic spaces. Upon its completion in August 2019, it was the largest CLT building in the US, supporting the economic potential of Arkansas’ burgeoning timber industry.
This project reuses and adds to a vacant library in the heart of the medical school quad, transforming it into a vibrant administrative and social center for the School of Graduate Studies and for the north campus as a whole. Located at the heart of 1960s era buildings on the school’s siloed north campus, the 32,995sf Anonymous Hall project — as well as new entrances for its surrounding buildings, a wide pedestrian bridge, and new circulation between buildings — transforms an overlooked corner of campus into a well-scaled, inviting north quad as well as an accessible, seamless link to the historic green and main campus shared with undergraduate sciences.
