The Tacoma Art Museum in downtown Tacoma, Washington
The new Tacoma Art Museum opened in 2003, doubling it’s square footage from the old museum and creating new flexible gallery space for it’s collection. Zahner provided the custom facade for the building, which was designed by Antoine Predock Architect PC.
The building features several of Zahner’s proprietary systems and processes, including the Inverted Seam Wall and Roof panel system. Use of the Inverted Seam system provides insulation, rain screen, and water-channeling, all on a minimal surface. The surface of the museum includes 36,000 square feet of 14ga. Stainless Steel with a Shadow finished surface.
