Visitors to the College of Design should use the Coliseum Parking Deck (201 Jeter Dr, Raleigh, NC 27606). A permit is not required, but it is paid parking lot – visit the Transportation website for more information. Enter the Coliseum pay lot from Cates Avenue just south of the deck on ground level. Pedestrians may then go through the tunnel in order to get to the College of Design.

There is a limited number of parallel parking spots directly outside of Brooks Hall on Pullen Road. These are first-come, first-served, and are paid spots. For information about hourly pay spaces, visit the Transportation Website.

Weekdays after 5 pm and on weekends, parking on campus is free and not monitored, so visitors are welcome to park in the Boney Lot, which provides easier access to the College. Custom directions here.

Just another top-tier study spot at the COD ❤️
Assistant Professor of the Practice Robin Vuchnich designed an immersive animated experience for @harvardmuseum using the legacy of Henry David Thoreau to highlight the profound loss of plant species to human-caused climate change. 🌻

"In Search of Thoreau’s Flowers: An Exploration of Change and Loss" is an immersive multidisciplinary experience that marries art and science through a modern artistic interpretation of Thoreau’s preserved plants. 

The exhibition invites visitors to experience emotionally resonant connections to the profound loss of natural diversity caused by human-induced climate change. The exhibition urges us to ask, “What do Thoreau’s findings tell us about what plants are winning, and what plants are losing, in the face of climate change today?”
