S P E C I A L    N C    P R O F I L E S

Dick Bell - noted landscape architect with a legacy of beloved projects such as Pullen Park, the NCSU Brickyard, and Meredith College Amphitheatre -- plus his famous Water Garden offices (destroyed).

 

Bryan Bell - a passionate national advocate for architecture for the "98% without architects." His nonprofit organization, DesignCorps, connects architecture and planning graduates to rural low-income communities.

 

Richard Hall - the unusual conversion of a former Raleigh Seventh Day Adventist Church to a private residence, and more.

Richard Kaydos-Daniels - the structural engineer behind many of the newest Modernist houses in the Triangle. 

Matthew Nowicki - The genius behind Raleigh's internationally-known Dorton Arena.

Frank Walser - the gifted contractor who built many of the Triangle's Modernist houses from the 1950's through the 1970's.  Many times he "saved the bacon" of client architects through translating unrealistic plans into load-bearing, practical realities. 

 

Triangle Shelters - the ultimate in bringing the outside in - because you are already outside.
