UA Design Center recognized by AIA.

The University of Arkansas Community Design Center recently received two 2011 honor awards for regional and urban design from the American Institute of Architects. The center is an outreach program of UA's Fay Jones School of Architecture.

The awards recognized two projects addressing the issue of sustainable design. The first project is a manual on low-impact development, which the center partnered with the UA's Ecological Engineering Group to produce. The second project, a "town scaping" plan for Farmington, focusing on restoring pedestrian use to the town, through the transformation of its five-lane highway to a multiuse boulevard.

In a statement by the CDC, Stephen Luoni, the center's director, said that with this year's projects, the center has "shown the profession that the nonprofit sphere can do compelling design work."
