How can Raleigh’s history shape its future development? How can maps reveal invisible connections and alternative perspectives to construct a rich and layered portrait of our city?  What social, political, and physical forces might we leverage to inform Raleigh’s rapid urban metamorphosis? These are some of the questions driving this exhibition of maps that (re)View Raleigh’s historic development to better understand why Raleigh is the city it is today and foster discussion concerning the city it might become in the future. The maps in this exhibition were developed by students at the College of Design at North Carolina State University to incite new conceptions of Raleigh as a physical, social, and experienced city.
