Last week Prof. Sharone Tomer’s second-year architecture students traveled to Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina to study contemporary architecture. Over two days the group visited a number of buildings by notable local, US based and international architects. They visited the North Carolina State University Hunt Library by Snohetta, the North Carolina Museum of Art Museum Park Visitor Center by In Situ Studio and the West Building by Thomas Phifer, the AIANC Center for Architecture and Design by Frank Harmon, the Contemporary Art Museum by Brooks + Scarpa, and the Duke University Brodhead Center by Grimshaw. The brief trip densely packed into opportunities to study public architecture of a variety of scales and situations, and introduced the students to architectural travel.
