Brooks + Scarpa’s Contemporary Art Museum Canopy in Raleigh

Brooks + Scarpa’s Contemporary Art Museum Canopy in Raleigh | Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Raleigh’s Contemporary Art Museum chose its new home in the city’s Depot District carefully. Located in a former produce warehouse, the project calls attention to the city’s history of railroad transportation and red brick architecture while emphasizing its commitment to sustainability and adaptive reuse. Led by Brooks + Scarpa Architects, the project included renovation of the existing 21,000-square-foot structure and the addition of a 900-square-foot entry pavilion. The glass-enclosed lobby reinterprets the location of the original building’s loading dock with an expanded and folded canopy that announces the building’s new purpose and balances the effect of daylight on its interiors.

Video Painting
Have you ever heard of Video Painting? Well, I did not hear the term until about a week ago while my colleague and I were discussing arts use to evoke change in politics and government.
