In Charleston, architecture lives and breathes as much as any resident, and many of the most iconic and singular forms of this unique built landscape have never graced the face of a postcard. For every meticulously preserved South of Broad single house, there is a reimagined rural retreat that marries modern design with timeless charm. For every Greek revival manse testifying to a tangled history, a restored freedman's cottage or renovated tenement building highlights the city's pivotal shift toward an economic and social order rooted in inclusion. From the prairie-style houses and American foursquares of the upper peninsula, to the revitalized corridors of industry located just beyond, Charleston's expansive aesthetic footprint of diverse man-made structures reflects the experimental and eclectic spirit that has given this area a salty swagger for centuries.
