Cordova Branch Library
28,000 sq. ft.
40 computer stations/4 meeting rooms
The Cordova Branch Library was developed as part of a campus including the Bert Ferguson Community Center. Designed with a civic presence, the building massing blends with the character of the surrounding residential neighborhood.
FORMUS blended contemporary and traditional design elements and detailing, corresponding with the image of the Memphis Public Library system. Also integrated into the design was interior and exterior sculpture commissioned by the Urban Art Commission.
In addition to architectural design, FORMUS designed/selected and oversaw the installation of the furnishings, shelving, equipment and signage for the library.
