This is a glimpse of a FUTURISTIC landscape. Trees will be made of metal and will be extinct.

Peaks and Valleys, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

The roof of the new NC Museum of Art have PEAKS AND VALLEYS that provide light to the new galleries. The peaks are actually louvered skylights that will control how much light can enter the galleries. Natural light is the new way to light art galleries.

It is a beautiful day here in Raleigh today. It was cold and windy this morning when I was taking these pictures. The workmen on site probably thought I was crazy! Luckily we didn’t get all that snow you all have everywhere else in the USA.

Behind the empty seats at Carter-Finley Stadium are the PRIVATE boxes for alumni. The football season is over for another year at NC State. Philip Rivers is an alumnus of State and is having a pretty good career in the NFL playing for the San Diego Chargers.
