About the Book
Robert M. Seel served as part of the Core Campus project team during construction as a local resource architect. During almost daily site visits from February 2015 through to September 2016, Rob took nearly 27,000 photographs to document the project’s construction progress. Among those visits, several opportunities and views for creative photography arose, often unexpectedly. Many of these views and shots, unseen by the general public, are presented in this monograph. Steel columns, concrete shafts, precast planks, trusses all put together in orthogonal geometry crisscrossed by cranes and boom lifts against a Carolina blue sky. The visual rhythms were as strong as the sounds of the work itself.
All photographs are the property of the artist-author, Robert M. Seel and RMS Architecture, LLC, working as an independent consultant to the Core Campus project team.
