UNC-TV airs documentary on the Dorton Arena that features Special Collections items

Design Library News - Fri, 2014-08-01 15:47

UNC-TV recently aired a brief documentary program on the Dorton Arena that includes several items from Special Collections, including an architectural model (see above image) of the Dorton Arena.

The documentary included an interview with NCSU School of Architecture’s Alumni Distinguished Professor of Architecture Dr. Wayne Place, who noted that the architects of the Dorton Arena were “pushing the envelope in ways that are almost unimaginable.” The Dorton Arena was conceived of by the Polish modernist architect Matthew Nowicki, but completed by William Henley Dietrich after Nowicki’s untimely death in a plane crash over North Africa. The documentary includes several images of Nowicki’s drawings of the Dorton Arena as he began to conceptualize the design of the building.

William Henley Deitrick’s drawings of the Dorton Arena that represent the final design can be viewed here.

For more information about the Special Collections Research Center and architectural materials, please contact us at library_specialcollections@ncsu.edu

The Farm at Black Mountain College: A Hunt Library Happening

Join David Silver, Visiting Scholar at the NCSU Libraries, for a multimedia happening that chronicles the rise and fall of Black Mountain College, founded in 1933 near Asheville, North Carolina. There will be two performances on Monday, August 4. The morning performance will start at 10:30 a.m. and conclude at noon. The evening performance will start at 7 p.m. and conclude at 8:30 p.m. Both performances will start at the Hunt Library iPearl Immersion Theater.

Education practitioners can still learn from what worked and what didn’t work at Black Mountain College, especially here at NC State where several of the College’s principles are still at work. Focusing on the Black Mountain College farm and work program, Silver will lead an exploration of the College’s lesser-known but vitally important participants. David Silver is associate professor of media studies, environmental studies, and urban agriculture at University of San Francisco.

Using the entire Hunt Library as a storytelling building and featuring never-before-seen photographs, this dynamic event will examine the most experimental college in American history. Silver will employ an unconventional storytelling approach that unfolds as participants walk through the building.

Free and open to the public. Presented by the NCSU Libraries. For more information contact Mike Nutt at mrnutt@ncsu.edu.
