Most people are surprised, even
shocked, to learn North Carolina has the third largest concentration of Modernist houses in America,
more than anywhere else except Los Angeles and Chicago. Who knew that little
ol' Mayberry would be a center for great residential architecture?
North Carolina Modernist Houses (NCMH), formerly Triangle Modernist Houses, is America's largest open digital archive for residential Modernist architecture. We are a nonprofit 501C3 educational archive with a heartfelt mission for the documentation, preservation, and promotion of Modernist houses.
Explore histories of hundreds of North Carolina Modernist houses and the lives of their architects and designers.
Then explore the world's largest digital gallery of residential Modernist masters such as Wright, Neutra, Kundig, Arahuete, Gehry, Gropius, Soriano, Breuer, Matsumoto, Schindler, Johnson, Rudolph, Saarinen, Koenig, Thorne, Harris, Gwathmey, Morgan, Meier, Lautner, and many more. Warning: very, very addictive. You could spend hours here. You probably will.
