The University of Arkansas Community Design Center (UACDC) is an outreach center of the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design, and one of a few university-based teaching offices in the United States dedicated to delivering urban design work. Nationally recognized in public-interest design, the center has its own downtown facilities and 5-6 professional design/planning staff. Beyond the focus on urban projects, UACDC has developed eight place-making platforms to shape civic design and public policy at state and municipal levels. These interdisciplinary platforms include missing middle housing, agricultural urbanism, transit-oriented development, context-sensitive street design, watershed urbanism, big box urbanism, smart growth, and low impact development.
