DETAILS

LocationTampa, Florida, USA
ClientCity of Tampa

The new Tampa Museum of Art by Stanley Saitowitz is set within the city’s arts district whose master plan was prepared by Thomas Balsley Associates and also includes Performing Arts Center, Children’s Museum, Riverwalk, and the centerpiece Curtis Hixon Park. The museum is dramatically sited on a plinth overlooking its companion park and the Hillsborough River. A long garden promenade leads visitors from Ashley Street to the large terrace over which hovers the museum’s minimalist volume. Stepping lawn terraces blur the lines between museum landscape and park and encourage visitors to venture beyond the art for views into the park’s sculptural exhibits.
