Hillary Rodham Clinton Children’s Library, located in the heart of a degraded Little Rock community, has become a catalyst for progress and regenerative energy. Existing site conditions such as urban surface storm water and topography drove the design concept, which was to create a micro-scale of Arkansas’ seven eco-regions. With the combined goals of education and storm water filtration, the design provides an enriching environment for the children, flora, and fauna of the urban environment. Multiple locations to accommodate outdoor class instruction were included, as well as a teaching garden, greenhouse, and demonstration kitchen.
