Taubman Museum

Taubman Museum

The City of Roanoke, Virginia, is situated in the surrounding mountainous landscape of the Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Mountains, and Appalachian Mountains.
This location is not where one would think to find a contemporary museum; however, that was exactly the objective.  The Museum wanted a cutting-edge building for the City.

Designed by Randall Stout Architects , Zahner was responsible for engineering, fabrication, and installation of the exterior metal facades.

The earth-toned metal surrounding much of the exterior and interior surfaces is a custom-patina product that Zahner refined for the Museum.  Roano™ Preweathered Zincis a surface well-known for being stable against weathering. Zahner’s ZEPPS™ Process, which simplified the construction process for the otherwise complex geometry of the stainless steel structure. We engineered the project using digital definition technologies which more than paid for itself when errors were caught in the plans. The surface of the lightly reflective metal is our exclusive Angel Hair™ Mechanical Finish on Stainless steel.
