Triangle Modernist Houses’ George Smart will discuss NC’s modernist legacy.
March 10, 2011 (Raleigh, NC) — George Smart, founder and director of the award-winning non-profit Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH), will present his signature talk “Mayberry Modernism: North Carolina’s Modernist Legacy” at the Cameron Village Library in Raleigh on Thursday, March 31, from 7-9 p.m.
“Most people, even architects, are surprised that the Triangle has the third largest number of Modernist houses in America,” Smart said. “Mayberry Modernism discusses why we have so many and shares photographs of over 50 eye-popping houses from past and the present.”
Smart’s presentation showcases the state’s surprisingly large collection of Modernist residences from the 1950s through today, particularly those in the Triangle region. Many of these houses are in great shape, but some are endangered and many have been destroyed.
