w.c. handy amphitheater

memphis, tn             unbuilt

the downtown memphis commission hosted a design competition to gain insight on the future of handy park. the park is on historic beale street. we submitted an entry, that was then selected as a finalist, and ultimately third place honors after input from the general public. 

the concept is to bring a world class performance venue to a street and entertainment district that hangs its hat on the southern sounds of rock n' roll and rhythm and blues. if a band has an opportunity to perform on this stage, it will stand tall among musical greats, like w.c. handy.
