BB&T Building © 2011

434 Fayetteville St. Raleigh

The 29-story, post-modern BB&T building is a combination of set-back skyscraper moderne and early influences of international style modernism. The extensive use of stone gives the building a greater sense of enclosure, and the matte finish a sense of weight. The ground floor entrance enframement is similar to that of the old Insurance Building.
