Downtown Commons receives Architect’s Award for Design

The Downtown Commons recently received an AIA Middle Tennessee, Chapter of the American Institute of Architects Honor Award for the design of the Commons, according to a press release from the Downtown Commons.

“The jury admired the initiative to create a public space with meaningful input from the community. The successful grass-roots effort combined with nicely scaled, functional buildings fosters civic life, and serves people over icons.”

The Downtown Commons opened to the public in 2018 and was designed by Lyle Cook Martin Architects & Franklin Associates Architects, according to the release.

“It doesn’t surprise me that the Downtown Commons was honored with another award,” Mayor Jim Durrett said. “From the beginning, I knew this park was a winner not only in the design world but also for our community.”

The Downtown Commons has provided the Clarksville community a place to gather and reconnect with friends and family since November 2017. Click here to learn more about the award information.
