Imperial Centre Theatre in Rocky Mount, North Carolina by Clark Nexsen

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Clark Nexsen

The site for the Imperial Centre Theatre is across an abandoned street from the historically significant Imperial Tobacco Company cigarette factory in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. This site, which has been a city park for the past century, was formerly occupied by a public swimming pool. The Imperial Centre Theatre is linked to the larger complex by an enclosed bridge that spans over the abandoned roadway. This bridge is designed to allow the presence of the historically significant street to be understood while minimizing the impact on the character of the original buildings. The structure and plan alignment of the bridge were derived from the existing overhead gantry previously used for transporting coal to the central boilers. The Imperial Centre Theatre seats 300 people in a surprisingly intimate relation to the stage.

Fayetteville Festival Park Performance Pavilion in North Carolina by Clark Nexsen

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

Article source: Clark Nexsen

The Performance Pavilion is the major architectural element in the overall plan of the new Festival Park in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It is comprised of a raised, covered stage, and back-of-house functions in a simple, rectangular extrusion. It is intended that, on a daily basis, the pavilion appears more like a park folly than an empty stage. To this end, the back-of-house functions slide to one side, allowing an open view through to the backdrop of existing trees. Operable panels, which can be retracted from behind a scrim wall, create a backdrop and crossover when performances are taking place.

Disorderly Conduct in Greensboro, North Carolina by Patrick Dougherty

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Article source: Patrick Dougherty

“Disorderly Conduct” is a sapling sculpture by Patrick Dougherty at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina. The sculpture was created over a three-week period, using saplings of red maple, gum, and persimmon harvested nearby. Students and other volunteers assisted Patrick in its construction. The final work stands sixteen feet high and covers a footprint that is 35′ x 25′. The inspiration for the work was a wasp nest found during the harvesting. Patrick noted the interlocking cells, and saw them as a symbol for community befitting the Quaker school.

Located in Raleigh’s revitalizing Historic Depot District, an unlikely butterfly has emerged from its decades-long cocoon. The historic 1910 two-story brick structure built for Allen Forge & Welding Company and enlarged around 1927 for the Brogden Produce Company — and more recently home to longtime occupant Cal-Tone Paints — has emerged from its asbestos clad sheathing into a new incarnation as the home of Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum (CAM).

Completed in 2007, the bus shelter is a prototype design that has been initially constructed on the Main Campus of Wake Tech Community College. As the College’s enrollment grows and the subsequent demand for public transportation increases, this prototype will be located on all of the current and future campuses.
