Students offer visions for Dix – Raleigh News & Observer

RALEIGH — When N.C. State University junior Dan Marino walks around the vast campus of Dorothea Dix Hospital, he doesn’t picture filling this space with office buildings or townhouses.

Instead, he sees spandex-clad cyclists of all skill levels racing around trails of his design — from mountain bikers bounding over hills, to young children leisurely learning the ropes of riding on their own.

Marino is one of 13 NCSU graphic design students assigned to draw up detailed designs for the Dix campus as a class project for the spring semester.
