Free and open to the public, the event will be held at one of RACo’s commercial projects, Trophy Brewing Co., 656 Maywood Avenue, Raleigh. Following the success of its first location on W. Morgan Street – which RACo also designed – Trophy Brewing opened this location in 2015 to feature a spacious taproom attached to a 20-barrell-production facility.
NCMH’s T4A events offer those interested in Modernist residential design the opportunity to connect and converse in a casual environment.
As the hosts for the evening, RACo principals Robby Johnston and Craig Kerins will provide food and beverages. They will also welcome special guest Lester Levine, the author of the new book 911 Memorial Visions: Innovative Concepts from the 2003 World Trade Center Memorial Design Competition, who will sign copies of the book.
Levine spent nearly seven months as the only person to ever review all 5201 entries in the 2003 World Trade Center Memorial Design Competition, identifying designs that challenged traditional ideas of a public memorial. After four years of seeking out and interviewing the creators of the design, Levin’s book tells the story of the evolving concept of an American memorial.
