A New Frontier

Explore Eden

There’s a new way to explore and experience the Natural State thanks to a startup in Fayetteville. Explore Eden is a service that connects campers with land owners that want to rent out their pristine land as campsites.

  • Looking for land: Hosts set their own prices, availability and rules for their property, and Explore Eden is available to help every step of the way. The startup is currently looking for hosts, so if you have land and would like to earn some passive income by hosting explorers, start with Explore Eden! 
  • Stay in the loop: The Explore Eden app will be launching in a couple weeks. Sign up for updates on the website

Art & Architecture

Portugal Panel

NWA Daily

We’re going to Lisbon, Portugal! Well, the design team of University of Arkansas’ Adohi Hall is. 

  • Pioneering venture: The residence hall was chosen to be on a shortlist of projects for the World Architecture Festival (WAF). Adohi Hall in Fayetteville made it in the category for the “Best Use of Certified Timber,” which isn’t surprising considering it is the “first large-scale mass timber building in the nation.” 
  • Pressure's on: With a record number of entries this year, 496 projects were shortlisted from 62 counties around the world. The teams will present live in front of a judging panel and compete at WAF in Lisbon Dec. 1-3.
