Along the Lumbee River, North Carolina
Along the Lumbee River: An Introduction
Initially, this report took the perspective of a typical architectural and urban design analysis by using environmental context and community data to tell a story about buildings and site interventions. However, through conversations with the contributors, the heart of the report grew to be about the larger environmental ecosystem of southern North Carolina, its people, and their historical and contemporary relationships to the land. In this way, buildings and site interventions became secondary to the narrative. The land—its history and the stewardship of it—are what we aim to honor and where the report begins.
