The Project

Catch a quick glimpse of this sleek campus with its curved glass, aluminum fins and interconnected skyways, and you might think you have sited a plane landing at the FedEx super hub at the Memphis International Airport. Actually, you’ve set your sights on a whole new kind of hub. From the exterior’s angular elements and strong repetitive linear patterns to the cutting edge infrastructure, the FedEx Express World HQ offers the nation its first glimpse of progressive corporate architecture in the 21st century.

The eight-building campus effectively captures the sense of forward momentum that characterizes the corporation’s culture and market presence, while incorporating key elements important to the buildings’ users including: open floor plans, access to exterior views, blending the campus with the landscape of the surrounding golf course, and ease of connectivity throughout the 89-acre campus and 1.1 million square feet of office space.
