Harvey B. Gantt Center

Harvey B. Gantt Center for African American Arts and Culture
Charlotte, North Carolina


Freelon Group used Fabral metal systems to convey two culturally significant symbols in their design – Jacob’s Ladder and quilts. The symbols pay homage to the African American Arts and Culture, promoted by the Harvey B. Gantt Center. The institution showcases the use of metal as a design component. Fabral Heft-Rib exposed fastener panels add texture and strength to the geometric design. The panels were finished in two shades of Fabral custom copper, further pronouncing the unique concept.
