With the help from a few of our readers, our Architecture City Guide headed to Charlotte this week. By American standards Charlotte is an old city, but it has undergone a huge transformation in the last few decades with the influx of banking headquarters. It is now the second largest banking center in the United State and this is partly reflected in its growing skyline. We, with the help of our readers, have put together a list of 12 buildings worth seeing. There are plenty more that could have made the list so please add your favorites to the comment section below.
The Architecture City Guide: Charlotte list and corresponding map after the break.
Currently seeking LEED Gold Certification, the newly completed Revolution Park Sports Academy in Charlotte, North Carolina is a key element to the Revolution Park neighborhood. The resulting design incorporates modern lines with respect to its historic southern neighborhood, therefore the holistic design approach needed to not just integrate sustainable design concepts but also provide an environment that both encourages social interaction and is welcoming to its surrounding community. Revolution Park Sports Academy is a significant first environmental project for Mecklenburg County.
