Frist Center for the Visual Arts and Sculpture Garden

LOCATION: Nashville, TN
CLIENT: Tuck Hinton Architects

Hodgson Douglas was part of the design team for this project of significant importance for the City of Nashville.  The Arts Center is housed in what was formerly the Downtown Post Office.  Our work was divided into two scopes: the redevelopment area south of the post office which is comprised of two city blocks containing older structures and surface parking.  The redevelopment plan included redesign of the area streets, clearing the sites, developing new parking, planting and streetscape.  The second scope included the area immediately around the post office and the new sculpture garden.
