This includes TMH’s popular Modernist house tours, which give the public access to the Triangle’s most exciting residential architecture, past and present.
The 2011 TMH Advisory Council includes: architects Jessica Johnson Moore, Dail Dixon FAIA, Thomas Crowder (Architektur PA), Doug Brinkley FAIA (Pearce Brinkley Cease + Lee), and Erin Sterling Lewis (In Situ Studio); Goodnight Raleigh.com’s John Morris; John Chiles; Stan Williams of the NC Symphony; Gail Jodon of Modern Charlotte; Curtis Leonard of Leonard Ryden Burr Real Estate, Chris Chinchar; Nowell’s Contemporary Furniture owner Jerry Nowell; Queron Smith of Mechanics & Farmers Bank, David Hill and Robin Abrams of the NC State University College of Design; Tobias Kaiser of Modern Florida Homes; and Kim Weiss of blueplate pr.
“The 2010 Advisory Council did an incredible job this past year, which was our most successful yet,” said Smart. “Their suggestions were key to significant website improvements and more. Because of them, TMH has evolved into a nationally known resource on Modernist residential houses and those who design them. Our tours continue to attract record visitors from across the state. I deeply appreciate the past Council members gifts of time and service and I look forward to working with the new Council in 2011.”
