Grand Award Winner! Metal Architecture magazine’s Design Awards honors Shelby Farms Park’s First Tennessee Visitor Center in Memphis, which features Tubelite’s storefront system.

Editor Marcy Marro describes the project as:

One of the largest urban parks in the country, Shelby Farms recently implemented a master plan developed by James Corner Field Operations to revitalize the 4,500-acre park into a nationally renowned landmark. As part of the master plan, the $50 million, 180-acre Heart of the Park was completed in 2016, and consists of an ensemble of buildings and structures located around the 80-acre Hyde Lake.

Designed by Marlon Blackwell Architects, the visitor center is an 8,000-square-foot building with a 7,560-square-foot covered porch. The cantilevered form glistens during the day from the reflected sunlight and glows at night when illuminated with site lighting.
