Located in the progressive Triangle region of North Carolina, the Center affords access to the vibrant cultural and intellectual communities supported by the area’s research institutes, universities, and dynamic arts scene. The stunning Archie K. Davis building includes private studies for Fellows, conference rooms, a central commons for dining, lounges, and reading areas. The Center’s library service supports Fellows by fulfilling thousands of requests for books and other research materials from our partner institutions in the Triangle, usually within 24 hours, and from libraries around the world.
