AMP article in Nashville Post

Seab Tuck was quoted in a Nashville Post article yesterday detailing the design goals and influences of the proposed AMP bus stations. Tuck-Hinton Architects has designed the stations to adapt to the physical constraints at each stop along the 7.1-mile route. The design utilizes prefabricated modular pieces for ease of construction and to limit the amount of traffic interference caused by construction.

The design influences recall imagery of Gothic pointed arches, a feature common to many historic Nashville buildings. The AMP shelters feature thin structural ribs which support horizontal canopies, alluding to the shape of the prevalent arches and taking cues from Nashville’s architectural vocabulary. Each station is also designed to have identity opportunities allowing the individual stations to be representations of their surrounding context.
