Architecture City Guide: Memphis

This week our Architecture City Guide is heading to . Called the Bluff City, is the birthplace of Rock-n-Roll, Elvis, and the Blues. Along with the lively music scene, offers an architectural landscape that tells its history and speaks to its future. With the help of a local, Sophorn McRae, we selected twelve contemporary buildings that should not be missed when you visit the Bluff City. Limited to twelve, we could hardly include all the locals’ favorites so please leave your must not miss in the comment section following the break.
