SHELBY FARMS PARK STRUCTURES
Memphis, Tennessee (2016)
Shelby Farms Park, the largest urban park in the country, has implemented a master plan, developed by James Corner Field Operations (JCFO), to revitalize the Park into a unique, 21st century park. An ensemble of buildings and structures is located around the 80 acre Hyde Lake; together, the buildings, lake, and landscape are imaged as the “Heart of the Park.”
Marlon Blackwell Architects developed a unified architectural vision for the buildings, knitting the projects together across the broad park landscape with a shared material palette. Each building connects directly to the surrounding landscape and supports the rich experiences in Shelby Farms Park.
