Where to Find a Bunch of Modernist Houses

What are some of the characteristics of a modern home design?

Where can you see a large collection of modern houses in one location?

What is the difference of "modernist design" and "contemporary?"

These are just a few questions that will be answered by my special radio guest Mr. George Smart, tomorrow (Monday, December 14, 2009) at 5:30 pm, EST. George is an expert in modernist architecture. He has a huge following on his web site that is On that site, you will find a large archive of modernist designed buildings, some buildings for sale, and sign up for tours and trips to see prized architectural gems.

From this web site, you will find:
"The Triangle area of North Carolina is the third largest concentration of modernist houses in America. We have more than anywhere except LA and Chicago. Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH) is a nonprofit historical archive for preserving modernist residential design. We are an early-warning system for endangered houses, an exclusive source for modernist house tours, an extensively detailed catalog of North Carolina and national architecture, and a community of knowledgeable advocates for modernist construction."

Feel free to call with your own set of questions during the show. That number is (646) 595-2228.

To listen to the show live, just go to at 5:30 pm EST tomorrow, Monday, December 14, 2009.
