Several years ago I spent a couple of nights in Asheville, North Carolina. I was on a road trip bound for Virginia. In the end, as is often the case for me, I wished I had more time to explore the city. As you can tell from this print I was quite inspired by the historic Asheville architecture.
As I was mainly going to see Biltmore Estate, I knew little about the city itself before I arrived that afternoon. I was excited to find that Asheville is a beautiful city. And I quickly discovered its reputation for embracing the arts is well deserved. The heart of downtown Asheville where I spent a brief afternoon was filled with music and people having a great time. And as I looked strolled around those downtown streets, I saw some truly grand old buildings including the historic brick skyscrapers featured in this Asheville architecture print.
Specifically these architectural details are from the landmark Jackson Building and its neighbor the Westall Building. Both of these early skyscrapers were built by the same architect but in very different architectural styles. The Jackson Building is in the Gothic Revival style and the Westall Building is in the Neo-Spanish Romanesque Revival style.
I loved the distinctively different bricks and details contrasting in such close proximity. Hence my determination to compose this Asheville architecture print in such a way that the viewer is almost obligated to compare the details of these Asheville landmarks. The end result is a fun and different architectural print.
Have you stood on Pack Square and looked up at the architecture of the historic Jackson and Westall buildings? Perhaps you are simply a fan of the architectural details in this Asheville print? I hope you will share what attracts you to this particular print.
