North Carolina State University: Reynolds Coliseum – Raleigh NC

Description

In 1942 the Work Progress Administration began construction for a building to serve as an armory, athletics coliseum, and student assembly hall. Only the skeleton was constructed during World War II; materials shortages caused by the war halted progress. After the war, construction recommenced when the college arranged other funding sources, and it was completed in 1949.
