From the architect. Shade Pergolas and an Outdoor Pavilion for performance and community gathering are designed for an urban park in North Carolina. The form and structure reference the heritage of the local textile industry - its patterned fabric and the motion of the textile loom equipment.

Purple heart wood, painted steel, copper sheet metal, brick, granite, and silicon bronze donor plaques are assembled with standard details in unique combinations to create a tailored pattern and image bound to its place.

Center City Park is located in the heart of downtown Greensboro, a historic city with deep roots in the textile industry. Increased investment has revitalized the downtown area and Center City Park played a key role as a center for culture and a symbol of community.
