All proceeds will go to AIA NC’s Building Fund.
January 14, 2011 (RALEIGH, NC) – Frank Harmon, FAIA, principal of Frank Harmon Architect PA and Professor in Practice at the NC State University College of Design, will be one of the three featured guests for Triangle Modernist Houses’ “Appetite 4 Architecture” dinner on Tuesday, February 8th, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at 18 Seaboard restaurant in Raleigh.
Proceeds from ticket sales to this dinner will go to the North Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA NC) for its building. The AIA NC Center for Architecture & Design headquarters, designed by Harmon’s firm, is under construction now in downtown Raleigh.
David Crawford, AIA NC’s Executive Vice President, and Steve Schuster, AIA, principal of Clearscapes, will join Harmon for the February 8th A4A dinner. Steve Schuster helped lead the effort to secure financing for the new building. The official groundbreaking ceremony took place on December 9th.
Sponsored and hosted by Triangle Modernist houses (TMH), Appetite 4 Architecture dinner events are opportunities for the general public to have informal discussions with Triangle area architects in an upscale dining environment. While TMH founder and director George Smart stresses that there will be no presentations during the Harmon/Crawford/Schuster dinner, “No doubt the new, modern, thoroughly ‘green’ headquarters building will come up!”
Tickets for the February 8th dinner at 18 Seaboard are $49 per person and include three courses (appetizer, entree, dessert) from a pre-selected menu plus coffee/water/tea, tax, and gratuity. Vegetarian options are also available. Ticket reservations are available at www.trianglemodernisthouses.com/a4a.htm.
