Den of Thieves But a Lovely Building

 

The North Carolina State Legislative Building, which opened in 1963, and was the first facility in the nation devoted to that purpose. Designed by Edward Durrell Stone, who also designed the Kennedy Center. It houses the General Assembly, which is dominated by rapacious Republicans (as if there were another kind).

 

UPDATE: The Repubs just lost their veto-proof majority in the lower house. This means our Democratic governor actually has power.

 

Below are two details from the south portico.The building is built on fours: four sides, four skylights, four rooftop gardens, four interior courts.

 

For the next two days I will present some interiors of this architectural gem.

I look forward to seeing the guts of this nest of Republicans Larry
Larry Bliss: In our recent midterms, the Repubs lost their veto-proof majority in the lower house, giving our Democratic governor some real power.

Quite a pleasing building really. Love your comment.
Larry Bliss: thank you...
A fine building Larry.

I had a feeling you weren't a Republican grin
Larry Bliss: I am a wet bleeding-heart snowflake...
Wonderful title. Looking forward to seeing more of the interior.

Let's hope that now we will see some positive changes made, Larry, and there will be a slowdown of the dangerous nonsense we've seen since 2016.
Larry Bliss: At least the brakes will be put on...
