October 13, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) — Mike Welton, a contributor on architecture to Dwell Magazine, the New York Times and Interior Design, will begin a new column in Raleigh Metro Magazine in the November 2009 issued titled Form and Function.
Welton, who lives in Wake Forest, NC, will cover news, people and events in the lively architectural community in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill and eastern North Carolina region.
The column will accompany the monthly in-depth design features by Metro’s Design Editor Diane Lea, according to magazine editor and publisher Bernie Reeves.
“Diane’s detailed pieces on homes and buildings are highly respected by readers and the architectural community,” he said. “Mike’s column, covering ongoing news items in the field, is a perfect complement to Metro’s dedication to consistent and detailed coverage of the built environment.”
Welton, who contributed an Other Opinion article to the Raleigh News & Observer on October 11 concerning public architecture says, “North Carolina and Raleigh in particular are rapidly becoming magnets for good architects intent on demonstrating excellent 21st-century design. Metro magazine is the perfect venue for showcasing their work in the built environment.”
Established in 1999, Raleigh Metro Magazine is a monthly publication covering North Carolina from the Research Triangle area to the coast, with a readership of 160,000. It is available at book stores, selected newsstands and online at www.metronc.com.
