BNIM Selected for the Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program
We are excited to announce that BNIM has been selected for the Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program. Established by the Walton Family Foundation, the Northwest Arkansas Design Excellence Program addresses potential challenges associated with the region’s rapid growth and aims to create welcoming public spaces that foster meaningful, shared experiences.
Selected architects, landscape architects and urban designers are regarded as delivering the highest caliber of design excellence across the country. This program identifies top design professionals, who are then placed on the list to be considered for funded projects that will foster connections and inspire a sense of belonging. Since the creation of this program in 2015, it has supported 15 projects across the region’s five largest cities.
“BNIM has always believed that projects have a responsibility beyond their immediate site boundaries and that solutions require broader, more integrated strategies. Our team is thrilled and honored to learn we’ve been selected to participate in the NWA Design Excellence Program and is excited to work with the selection committee and the Walton Family Foundation to shape and strengthen the community by helping create resilient, inclusive public spaces that celebrate place and build regional capacity.”
