William J. Clinton Presidential Center, Little Rock, Ark., by Polshek Partnership Architects (now known as Ennead Architects).
The main approach to the Clinton Presidential Center cuts through a 30-acre city park beside the river.
Exterior circulation adds a thermal buffer to the museum, contributing to its LEED Platinum certification.
Extensive glazing allows daylight to reach interior spaces, while providing views toward the Arkansas River and the surrounding park.
A solar screen reduces interior solar gain, while temperatures are mitigated by demand-controlled ventilation and radiant floors.
