.  Beale Street Landing  .

Docking Facilities and Riverfront Park. International Competition.
Memphis, Tennessee, USA. 2014.

The goal of Beale Street Landing in the city of Memphis is to reshape the bank of the Mississippi River. It is located on a central point of the city, the confluence of Tom Lee Park, the Cobblestones, the birthplace of the blues, Beale Street, and the Mississippi River.
The project had to consider a terminal river port with its harbor and a public meeting space.
The main premise was to celebrate the river and have it as a protagonist. It had to be seen without any visual interference from all of the project points of view. Therefore, It was proposed to connect topographically the environmental elements, extending the park to the Cobblestones and passing over the terminal. This building has fully transparent facades, allowing in this manner to see the water through the design. Its core, which pierces the roof garden, was covered with a pixelated image of the river at sunset, turning this structure into an iconic city reference.
A floating dock system, supported by two submerged arms, connected to a large helical ramp articulate the terminal with passenger ships.
The meeting place became a coastal park; in term, the terraced park interacts with the river, which fluctuates up to 15 meters, and transforms it throughout the year. Flood or ebb, mean two very different experiences to look at.
