Rothwell Hall gives the east entrance to Arkansas Tech University a dramatic urban feel. An oversized sky-lighted front porch is a gathering space for students before touring campus. Inside the main lobby, glass walls allow continuous views of the academic advising center and trading room. The ticker tape in the trading room passes through the glass wall and continues into the lobby.


On each floor the elevators open onto a lounge where students can study, charge their laptops and watch keep tabs on who is coming and going. The building houses some of the most advanced technology on campus while using the established exterior material palette in new and innovative ways.
