William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Park

Little Rock, Arkansas

Polsheck Partnership Architects / WER Associated Architect

This award winning building was designed by the Polshek Partnership of New York. WER Architects was on the team of local architects and engineers who produced construction documents and provided construction administration for the Clinton Presidential Library and Park in association with Polshek. The museum’s design alludes to an appeal by President Clinton at the close of the millennium, “Let us build a bridge to the 21st Century” and echoes the structural form of the nearby abandoned railroad bridge, which became a pedestrian pathway across the Arkansas River. As a part of the local team, WER was responsible for all the archival and secure storage, fabrication, isolation/quarantine, archival staff and restroom areas, and the restoration of the Choctaw Railroad Depot to be the Clinton School of Public Policy. This project was LEED New Construction Silver and Recertified LEED Existing Building Platinum. The Clinton Library received a 2006 AIA National Design Award.
