Tennessee Performing Arts Center selects BIG to design new performance home

A team made up of Danish architect Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), Boston’s William Rawn Associates and Nashville-based EOA Architects has won a contract to design a new home for the Tennessee Performing Arts Centre (TPAC).

Following the approval of a $200 million State grant, TPAC intends to build upon its unique capacity for narrative storytelling to create an artistic beacon worthy of Tennessee's creative legacy.

Bjarke Ingels, BIG’s founder, said: "Nashville is a city fueled by the creative energy of music and performing arts. TPAC is already a lively and celebrated institution in the cultural fabric of Nashville – and together with the TPAC leadership team, William Rawn Associates and EOA Architects, we are about to embark on a journey to imagine and design the future physical framework of TPAC that will be as open, inviting, integrated and inclusive as the institution already is. Once the form reflects the organization's mission, we believe TPAC will be one of the great cultural institutions for performing arts in the country, and in the world."
