NASHVILLE (AP) – The State Building Commission has selected Robert E. Oglesby to be the state architect.

A licensed Tennessee architect for more than 25 years, Oglesby has been president and principal-level designer for EOA Architects in Nashville and, more recently, the executive vice president of Wiser Company in Murfreesboro.

He succeeds Alan Robertson, who had been acting state architect since last June.

The state architect serves as the curator of the state Capitol and grounds, oversees the state's building and land development projects and develops design standards for agencies.
