A North Carolina 501C3 Educational Nonprofit Archive
Documenting, Preserving,  and Promoting Residential Modernist Architecture

George Smart is Chair and Founder of the nonprofit Triangle Modernist Archive, Inc, host to North Carolina Modernist Houses (NCMH), America's largest open digital archive for Modernist residential architecture. The son of a Raleigh architect, for years he had no interest whatsoever in architecture.

 Then in 2007, late at night, something happened.  He was innocently Googling late one night and his life changed forever.  George created NCMH and is widely recognized for advancing North Carolina architecture through research, outreach, and advocacy.  George's passion for preservation and his demonstrated civic commitment have earned a leadership reputation in the preservation community.

George leads initiatives with community-building strategies across a diverse population of Modernist supporters.  He has created an organization which is a role model for advancing preservation and raising public appreciation of Modernist design.  His compelling and entertaining keynote, Mayberry Modernism, shares how North Carolina became the third largest concen
tration of Modernist houses in the country.  He has spoken to over 65 audiences all across North Carolina and at 2014's Modernism Week in Palm Springs.
