TAMPA, FL-The city takes a step closer to the realization of its new $52 million Tampa Museum of Art with architect Rafael Vinoly’s presentation of his design for the structure, which will stand 100 feet tall. Vinoly revealed his design for a six-story, 124,000-sf arts facility at a public meeting last week. The museum will be the center attraction of the city’s 28-square-block arts and culture corridor.

“The new Tampa Museum of Art will be a world-class facility that serves as the prelude to a new, vibrant downtown cultural district,” Vinoly said at the event. “It will be more than a place where people visit during museum hours. It will be an urban center–a gathering place for families and a historical landmark for the city. We have given the city a more intimate connection to its waterfront with this design, while moving the museum away from the water’s edge.”

One of the most distinctive features of the steel and translucent structure will be a canopy, designed to address problems such as visual access in an area surrounded by other prominent edifices. Construction of the project is expected to begin next year and the estimated completion date is December 2004.
