This project focuses on the public architecture of North Carolina, from the early Republic to today. Under the general interest in a political history of architecture, we will research major building types (prisons, schools, museums, city halls, etc.) and develop digital maps to visualize the results. The point of the multiyear project will be to produce a dynamic and interactive digital map that allows art historians to query general patterns in publicly sponsored building activity across the state. In addition, specific research into key monumental structures will be highlighted through digital story telling and other means.
