Visioning Rail Transit book awarded NEA grant

A collaborative teaching project involving William Conway (Architecture) while he was a visiting professor at the University of Arkansas School of Architecture has received a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant to publish a book documenting the project. The book, Visioning Rail Transit in Northwest Arkansas: Lifestyles and Ecologies, describes sustainable development possibilities along a proposed rail line linking cities in northwest Arkansas.

The project has won numerous awards including a 2007 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Education Honor Award, 2008 NCARB Prize, and most recently a 2008 Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design by the AIA, and has been exhibited in Boston, San Antonio, Cincinnati, and Seattle.
