Arts & Culture
North Carolina State University’s Gregg Museum of Art and Design is relocating from the Talley Student Center to the former Chancellor’s Residence, enabling the University to share the site’s architectural and landscape resources with the greater Raleigh community. The site was buffered from neighboring properties by thick vegetation, creating a secret garden atmosphere. The design strategy unifies the museum expansion with the Georgian house through the use of a pedestrian plinth. A substantial walkway bridges over the lawn to Hillsborough Street, connecting to the City of Raleigh.
