new-image1Durham architect Phil Freelon ’75 and his firm, The Freelon Group, are featured in the upcoming issue of NC State magazine.

The Freelon Group’s imprints are seen on streets in North Carolina and in skylines across the United States. Its latest project is the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, which will occupy one of the last open spots on the National Mall. And the firm is also designing the new Gregg Museum of Art & Design at NC State.

Freelon’s projects blend function with contemporary style to leave memorable structures that do more than just stand idle. Featuring specific historical and unique motifs, they tell stories and engage their visitors for an experience.
