Modern Building Materials

This 21st century metal canopy shades the outdoor amphitheater at North Charleston's Riverfront Park, showing us man-made materials and textures quite dissimilar to the building materials of yesterday. Metal alloys and synthetics replace stone and wood. Though ever-changing, the sky will forever be the constant background to the evolving elements of construction.

This amphitheater is a feature of the The Navy Yard at Noisette, a long term attempt to build a new American city from the industrial remains of an old navy base.
