The Peter C. Sugar Drawings of the Potential Reconstruction of a Modified Version of the Raleigh House contains some drawings and born-digital content created by architect Peter C. Sugar. These architectural drawings and files demonstrate Sugar's work on a proposal for a modified version of the Raleigh House, originally designed by architect Eduardo Catalano.

Eduardo Catalano's iconic modernist Raleigh house (built in 1954 and demolished in 2001) was going to be reconstructed as a pavilion on NC State University's campus. In 2004, Catalano proposed to the university the construction of the pavilion as part of his architectural legacy. The pavilion was originally planned for construction on the eastern end of the Court of North Carolina, but there was strong opposition against the location by many members of the campus community, so Catalano withdrew his offer in May 2005. Peter Sugar's later drawings and proposal for a modified version of the Raleigh House on Centennial Campus in 2009 also did not come to fruition.

Peter Sugar received a B.A. degree at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London in 1955, and he received a Master of Architecture degree from the Massuchetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1960. He worked as an architect with Eduardo Catalano from 1968 to 1977. More information about his career can be found here: http://www.petersugar-architect.com/read-me/
