Central Park Band Shell – Red Wing, MN

The design for a new Band shell in Red Wing Central Park serves as a contemporary structure set into the surroundings of an historically significant environment, replacing an aging "bandstand" that was no longer able to meet programmatic requirements of use and accessibility. The Band shell is the centerpiece of a revitalization project taking place throughout the park. The design seeks to define itself as new construction which renews and enriches the existing Historic Mall setting. This is accomplished by introducing materials and techniques used in modern construction that complement the existing colors, textures, character, and scale in the immediate vicinity.
