11:00am to 12:00pm
- Exhibit Gallery at the D. H. Hill Library
College of Design associate professor Russell Flinchum leads a special tour of the exhibition An Engineer’s Eye: The Architectural Photography of Gordon Schenck in the D. H. Hill Library Exhibit Gallery on Saturday, Jan. 13 at 11:00 a.m.
Drawing upon a substantial collection on deposit in the NCSU Libraries Special Collections Research Center, An Engineer’s Eye celebrates the unique compositional approach Schenck became known for, situating his subject in time and place, harnessing light and shadow, opacity and reflection to reveal a building’s form, seeking unexpected vantage points that integrated the structure with its surrounding environment. These are core tenets of Modernism, and many of the Southeast’s notable mid-century modernist homes are among the photographs on display.
No tickets are necessary for the free, public tour, but pre-registration is required.
