Shelby Farms Park has been selected as a recipient of the The American Institute of Architects (AIA) 2019 Regional & Urban Design award -- a big win for the Park and for Memphis!
According to AIA, "the 2019 Regional & Urban Design program recognizes the best in urban design, regional and city planning, and community development. The best planning accounts for the entire built environment, local culture, and available resources—modeling architecture’s promise and true value to communities."
The Park joins other notable projects, including Seattle's Pike Place MarketFront, Detroit's East Riverfront Framework Plan and Massachusetts's Infra-Space Initiative.
