Charlotte Civic Center. UTM:  17 514370E 3897864N  Opening in September 1973, the Charlotte Civic Center at E. Trade and College Sts. is a dramatic expression of the Modernist style.  Virtually devoid of exterior ornamentation, the building is essentially a rectangular mass with large pyramidal skylights penetrating a flat roof.  The architect of the building was A. G. Odell, Charlotte's principal exponent of Modernism.  The edifice elevated Charlotte's role as a place to hold conventions and gave a great boost to the construction of new hotels in the Center City.

A. G. Odell
