Amazing Architecture: North Carolina
North Carolina, from the Appalachian mountains to Charlotte City, the 2nd largest banking center in the US, North Carolina has a whole range of natural and man made spectacles. In this iteration of Amazing Architecture, we’ll look at some of the noteworthy builds in North Carolina.
American Tobacco Campus: Located in Durham, this area used to be a tobacco factory complex now turned into a historical district. The entire area uses its historic industrial space to create a unique urban space made up of 10 buildings and over 1 million square feet. Despite the abundance of industrial buildings, there has been much greenery and trees planted to give a change of scene. Local businesses and restaurants set up shop here and cater to hundreds daily.
Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture: located in Charlotte, this museum celebrates African American art and culture and is named after the first African American mayor of the city. The building itself is quite unique as it models after African textile designs and quilting patterns, but instead of cloth there are tan metal panels and steel beams. Overall this center serves as an important space in Charlotte for the visual arts.
