Join the Charlotte Ideas Festival for a discussion about architecture in Charlotte at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art!
What is the future of architecture in Charlotte? Is there a style of building that defines Charlotte? Why do so many of our buildings seem alike? Will our apartment buildings even be standing twenty years from now? What role can clients, architects, and planners play in making Charlotte more distinct? What's a big idea of design for our city? What's at stake?
