NC State University

The Alumni Center at NC State University is home to the NC State Alumni Association and features event space for private and Alumna events. Surface 678 integrated the 59,000 square foot facility within its five-acre wooded site overlooking Lake Raleigh. Visitors approach the Center from terraced parking through a Donor Plaza commemorating the twelve Colleges of the University. Along the plaza walkway, four glassed columns etched with the names of contributors to the building effort and a vine-covered trellis lead visitors to the building’s porte-cochere entrance. Outdoor programmable space includes a large paved plaza for tented functions and weddings and a quiet dining patio under the forest canopy. (Photography credit: Jerry Blow)
