Cultural Campus

Charlotte, NC
Category: Arts & Culture
Award: Best New Architecture
Year Won: 2010
Pick: Editor's Pick

The trendy and obvious pick here would be the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art. But in fact, the entire Cultural Campus is our selection. The Mario Botta-designed Bechtler is the star, yes, but we love the way all three museums (including the Mint and the Gantt Center) and the Knight Theater have distinct looks and identities yet complement and play off each other. Together, it’s like a beautiful piece of jazz, and Charlotte’s architectural identity will never be the same.
