LTL Architects and SCAPE Landscape Architecture have been selected to design the new facility for the Helen R. Walton Children's Enrichment Center (HWCEC) and Early Childhood Initiatives Center (ECIC) in Bentonville, AR. LTL was chosen from a pool of 36 pre-selected firms in the inaugural round of the Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program. LTL and SCAPE will work alongside local architects Hight Jackson, engineers Harrison French, and contractors East Harding to complete the Center. HWCEC directly serves over 240 children aged months-old to pre-K, and ECIC provides training facilities for professionals from nearly 500 early childhood programs throughout Northwest Arkansas. Designed from the ground up, this new project will be a model for the integration of architecture and landscape in a community-based educational facility for young children.
Please join LTL Architects for the opening of Structures of Coastal Resilience: Designing for Climate Change, at the Center for Architecture on Wednesday, February 3, 6-8 PM. Structures of Coastal Resilience is a multi-team project supported by the Rockefeller Foundation to address rising sea levels and storm surges in coastal cities. Out of the four proposals, this show will display the two closest to home in New York City. Princeton University/LTL Architects' proposal, "The Amphibious Suburb: Atlantic City, NJ" will appear alongside City College of New York's plan for Jamaica Bay, NY.

With construction underway on Upson Hall, the Cornell School of Engineering anticipates the new learning spaces that the renovation will provide. In addition to a completely new facade for the 60-year-old building, the redesign of Upson Hall will offer reconfigured offices and classrooms for increased exchange, an expanded Experiential Learning Lab, and hybrid engineering labs. The Upson Hall renovation was designed by the interdisciplinary team of LTL Architects, Perkins+Will, and Thornton Tomasetti.
LTL Architects' Nazareth House design is on display at the exhibition, Towards a New / Old Architecture, currently on view in the Main Gallery of the Susquehanna Art Museum (SAM). SAM partnered with the Pennsylvania chapter of the AIA and Chris Dawson Architect on this exhibition, which shows extensive representation of 10 projects in Pennsylvania. The exhibition will be on display until January 17, 2016.
