Going back in time at American Tobacco

At its height, The American Tobacco Company was the largest cigarette producer in the world. After it closed up shop in Durham in 1987, the campus of historic buildings sat empty for many years before being brought back to life as one of the largest historic preservation projects in North Carolina’s history. The end result is a home-run of adaptive reuse architecture.
