The Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts (AMFA) is a 133,000-square-foot museum, designed by Studio Gang architects and landscape architect SCAPE, located within Little Rock’s historic MacArthur Park. It offers exhibitions (both drawn from its collection and temporary shows), classes of all levels at its Windgate Art School, and performances in its flexible theatre spaces.

The project combines new construction and the renewal of existing structures built between 1937 and 2000, and includes nearly 13 acres of public landscape. Earlier this year, AMFA completed its new innovative roof—a flowing, folded plate concrete structure, blossoming out to the north and south.

Spanning the length of the building, the roofline connects new construction and renovated spaces and establishes AMFA’s new architectural identity. The distinctive design of the roof also contributes to the Museum’s sustainability, as stormwater runoff will be conveyed into a series of lush rain gardens designed by SCAPE, which will attract pollinators and migratory birds to natural depressions throughout the site.

The Momentary is a new contemporary art space envisaged as a satellite to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. Led by Chicago-based Wheeler Kearns Architects, the adaptive reuse project saw the 63,000-square-foot decommissioned cheese factory into a multidisciplinary space for visual, performing, and culinary artists. The firm was
tasked with envisioning the Momentary’s aim of creating a space offering a unique experience unlike a traditional museum.

This building is the result of a transformation of an existing metal shop building into a sanctuary and fellowship hall in anticipation of a larger adjacent sanctuary on the same site. The simple original structure is enveloped by a new skin, obscuring and refining the original gabled form.
