Triangle Modernist Houses Names 2012 Advisory Council

November 17, 2011 (DURHAM, NC) – George Smart, founder and director of Triangle Modernist (TMH), has named the organization’s 2012 Advisory Council.

TMH is a 501C3 nonprofit established in 2007 to preserve and promote Modernist architecture in the Triangle. The award-winning website is now the largest educational and historical archive for Modernist residential design in America.

Appointment to the Advisory Council is a one-year term starting January 1, 2012. Selected from a cross-section of the design community, Advisory Council members support and improve TMH’s programming including popular house tours, architecture movies, trips, presentations, and many other events.

Members of the 2012 TMH Advisory Council are:

“One of the greatest challenges we face in architectural history is the identification, protection, and public appreciation of North Carolina’s modernist architecture—especially of houses,” said Dr. Brook, “I am particularly interested in the intellectual and architectural legacy of Dean Henry Kamphoefner and the faculty and students of the former School of Design at NCSU. I welcome membership on the TMH Advisory Council as a way to preserve this heritage and to encourage future excellence and innovation in architectural design.”

“The Advisory Council is part focus group, part brain trust.  Their experience and insights into design and preservation tapped new wildly popular events moved our website up to 30,000+ hits a month.  It’s an honor to get this dream team together, and I look forward to a great 2012,” said George Smart.
