The 17th Charlotte Art Weekly has taken inspiration from Louis Asbury the famous North American architect, who was considered to be the first professionally trained architect in NC who was born and even practised in the state. Many of his monuments have been mentioned in the National Register of Historic Places, which includes 112 Tryon Plaza, National Bank of Charlotte, Lenoir Grammar School and various others. His designs were dynamic during his era, and he had a proficiency in Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, and Neoclassical Revival modes. His edifices have been honoured at various instances, and Asbury is a great architecture figure in the history of Charlotte, NC.
