VISITORS CENTER NEAR ASHEVILLE
New, green gem by Blue Ridge Parkway
Blue Ridge Parkway Destination Center.
Drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and you see them from the road, the cabins, barns and sheds distinctive to southern Appalachian Mountains.
Drawing on such local features — sheltering overhangs, peaked roofs, wooden trusses — architects charged with designing a new visitors center for the parkway came up with a large, open structure that seems at home in the mountains.
