Chapel Hill & Carrboro, North Carolina: Dream up Downtown: Hidden in Plain Sight

  • 179 East Franklin Street Chapel Hill, NC, 27514 United States (map)

Every city is filled with thousands of hidden features that contribute to a sense of vibrancy and place. These physical elements are consciously designed to maximize our enjoyment and use of our spaces, but every day we walk past them, over them, under them, without even noticing their brilliant design. Have you ever wondered why manhole covers have the patterns they do? What about the shape of the bicycle rack you use every day? The width of the sidewalk outside your favorite coffee shop? Walk with us as we explore the almost invisible physical design features of downtown that are essential to the functioning of Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
