The finalists:

* Wittenberg, Delony & Davidson of Little Rock, partnered with Studio RED of Houston.
* Martinez + Johnson of Washington DC, partnered with Roark Perkins Perry Yelvington of Little Rock.
* Ennead Architects of New York, partnered with Polk Stanley Wilcox of Little Rock.
* Witsell Evans Rasco of Little Rock, partnered with LMN of Seattle.

The project, unveiled last June, could cost $65 million.
