WILSON ART CENTER

WILSON TITLE.jpg

ARC302 Architectural Design: Technology, Spring 2021

for the City of Wilson, NC

Corner of Douglas St S & South St S, Wilson, NC 27893

Complementing the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park and Museum, design an art center for the city of Wilson. This project focuses on the concepts of creating and discovering through the idea of movement, connected and emphasized by a central atrium. A colorful, moving facade supports the goals of the project, as well as connects to Whirligig Park. To improve this project, a reconsideration of circulation and integration into the Park would strengthen the goals of this project.

Collaborative project with: Naima Sutton
