Henning Larsen and RATIO to Design the East Civic Tower, Phase One of the Civic Campus in North Carolina

Henning Larsen was just selected for the design of the first phase of the Civic Campus in Raleigh, North Carolina. In collaboration with local firm RATIO, the project part of the city’s strategic plan consists of creating the East Civic Tower, the town's city hall.

With a new design, the East Civic Tower aims to “consolidate city functions and feature public service as well as amenities”. The Henning Larsen/RATIO duo will work closely with the City of Raleigh, and with the public, in order to deliver a contextual architecture. Henning Larsen, famous for his award-winning city halls and civic centers, will lead the design group. The team will be "supported by exceptionally qualified individuals from North Carolina firms and Women and Minority-owned businesses".
