Magnificent Metal Mondays

NASCAR Hall of Fame (1)

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I’m on vacation this week but there is no vacation from all of you. Today we travel to  Charlotte, North Carolina and feature the NASCAR Hall of Fame. While none of us here at METALCON are NASCAR fans, we can certainly appreciate the buildings beauty. What you’ll find by looking at the building is that the design team really focused on the sport and how to translate it into a structure. The building clearly evokes speed, with it’s curvaceous shape that looks like a race track. The design team is listed below and to learn more about the NASCAR Hall of Fame click here.
