University of Arkansas Department of Agriculture Rice Research Center

Stuttgart, Arkansas

The original Rice Research Center consisted of several scattered buildings across the campus. The WER Architects team designed a cohesive campus for the University of Arkansas Rice Research Center, which provided an updated facility for continued research and outreach in this most important agricultural community. The central lobby and entry space connect administrative offices, a conference center, clean labs and support functions for faculty, staff and visitors. South of a central courtyard, a separate building includes labs for rice breeding, entomology, agronomy, pathology, drying, milling, and seed storage with close access to the fields.
