Between the mountains of the Blue Ridge and the shores of the Outer
Banks lies North Carolina's Research Triangle of Raleigh, Durham, and
Chapel Hill.  One of the nation's premier concentrations of academic,
corporate, and public research, the area combines moderate year-round
temperatures, rolling hills, championship college athletics, and a rich
diversity of cultural events.  The Triangle consistently ranks high on
lists of desirable American communities, including a recent rating as
the number-one place to be in terms of education and standard of living.

architecture materials, the expansion of a new university history
