Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Convention Center Construction





Convention Center construction is moving right along. It is shaping up to look very much like airports and other towers I made with Legos as a kid. The giant glass part looks just like the inverted 3 x 4 x 5 windshield that was popular in many Lego sets. The rooftop above it looks exactly like a white 6 x 10 plate, especially with the writing on the insulation. This isn’t an insult, far from it. I find it fascinating, as well as inspiring.
