Abstract

The project, a bookstore for a vacant site within the Pinch Historic District in downtown Memphis, Tennessee, develops an architectural concept of design compatibility that maintains the continuity of the existing architectural vocabulary rather than creating a literal historic replication.

By using this philosophy, the design of an urban infill project that respects the history as well as the existing character of the district is developed. At the same time, the Bookstore meets the needs of the residents and visitors of the area through the provision of residential, commercial and entertainment space, thus contributing to the comprehensive revitalization of Downtown Memphis.
