So far, we have gone around the entire Gulf Coast and saw some of the incredible architecture in the area, and now we begin our journey up the east coast! In this iteration of Amazing Architecture, we will be covering some of the incredible sites found in the state of South Carolina.
“Eye of the Storm” Beach House: Located in the Isle of Palms, this beach house looks like it came straight from a science fiction movie. Its white dome shape gives it a futuristic look as well as being designed specifically to combat hurricane level winds and rain. The multiple terraces and balconies extending from the dome heighten its “spaceship” aesthetic, and the home’s protruding chimney looks like an antenna.
Arthur Ravenel Bridge: This bridge connecting Mt. Pleasant and Charleston was built in 2005, replacing two bridges that could no longer handle the weight of traffic. What turned out was the 3rd longest bridge in the western hemisphere at 13,200 ft, and a beautiful design as well. Boasting two symmetrical diamond shaped towers with over 100 cables suspending the bridge, it is truly a magnificent site. This bridge also hosts the Cooper Bridge run, attracting over 50,000 runners around the country.
