Washington firm chosen to redesign entry to Civil Rights Museum

By Michael Lollar


A Washington firm that has been involved in design projects involving memorials to Holocaust victims and to terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center has been chosen to redesign the entry to the National Civil Rights Museum.
Those listening posts with audio and video clips would "help put you in the moment," company co-owner Tracy Revis said when the firm presented its ideas. The most dramatic proposal was to move a 7,000-pound bronze sculpture, "Movement to Overcome," from the lobby into a landscaped courtyard, then remove interior walls of the museum's second floor to create what Revis called "a gracious spacious place." The Howard + Revis proposal also called for enlarging the museum's 100-seat auditorium to 300 seats.

National Civil Rights Museum Expansion
Two historic buildings adjacent the original Lorraine Motel have been restored and expanded as part of “Exploring the Legacy,” a major addition to the National Civil Right Museum in Memphis. New exhibition space chronicles the months and days before and after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Plaza, a new outdoor promenade, connects the expanded museum complex with the revitalized South Main business district and provides a community park for reflection and contemplation.
SIZE: 15,000 sq. ft.

Tunica

The Tunica area is now the third largest gaming region in the United States, after Las Vegas and Atlantic City. Its booming effect on the local economy has spurred population growth in unincorporated parts of the county outside Tunica proper.

Improvement projects prepare to take off at Tunica airport



More than $10 million in construction at the Tunica Municipal Airport could get under way this year (2009) on projects ranging from the airport’s long-discussed new terminal to a transportation courtyard and new fire station.
The airport has received funding from the Federal Aviation Administration, the Mississippi Department of Transportation and the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, including an expected $1.25 million in stimulus funding for construction of the fire station.
The airport is expanding its apron with $1.5 million from the FAA.
The airport is 30% ahead of its passenger pace from last year, when more than 59,000 passengers passed through the airport.
Once the terminal is completed, Nash says, the next step would be to build an air traffic control tower, which would be budgeted at $1.5 million-$1.8 million.

Tunica Air Center Executive Terminal @ Tunica Municipal Airport
The new Tunica Air Center FBO is an executive facility with over 11,000 square feet of terminal space. This world class facility includes first class amenities to support businesses and gaming tourism. In 2003, Tunica County opened a 7,000-foot expanded runway and new Corporate Air Center at Tunica Airport (UTA). Installation of ICS/MALRS, PAPI and AWOS was completed in 2004. A canopy at the corporate air terminal provides for easy access inside the terminal. Air traffic control tower, hangars (private and corporate), commercial apron concrete - 320,000 square feet, commercial terminal, and expansion of the runway to 8,500 feet are some of the improvements completed in 2005. Developed primarily as a charter airport, Tunica Airport expects to become a first-class regional airport providing cargo and scheduled passenger service.
Memphis International Airport is located 30 miles north of Tunica. It boasts nine major airlines, three commuter airlines and 300-plus daily passenger flights. The Memphis International Airport is ranked as the number one cargo airport in the world as it is the home of the Federal Express Super Hub, a major United Parcel Service hub, NWA, RPS and Emory sort facilities. Daily direct flights to Amsterdam are available on KLM.
Tunica Airport hosted the Tunica Air Races in June 2005. This event is only the second location in the U.S. and east of the Mississippi River allowed to race airplanes.

I'm in the midst of deconstructing the 1st page of this thread. It contains too many linked photos that take forever to load. I now keep an extensively updated thread in the southeast development sub forum and another at skyscraperpage in the City Compilations.
