April 7, 2011 (Raleigh, NC) — Following the popularity of its Appetite4Architecture dinners that connect the public with local Modernist architects, Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH) will launch the first Thirst4Architecture (T4A) happy hour in partnership with GoodnightRaleigh.com.
The happy hour is April 27 at Natty Greene’s Pub & Brewing Company in Raleigh from 6-8 p.m. The informal, cash-bar event is free and open to the public. No pre-registration is required.
TMH is an award-winning, nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting modernist residential design. Co-host Goodnight, Raleigh! (www.goodnightraleigh.com) is a popular online magazine run by 11 photographers. The blog is updated several times a week with images of the city at night and stories on the subjects of the photographs. Publisher John Morris is best known recently by his campaign to save the Milton Small-designed bookstore at N.C. State University.
“Our film series and dinner events in the winter have connected hundreds of people within the architecture-loving public,” said TMH founder and director George Smart. “Our T4A events will bring together the larger design community around some of the area’s great restaurants and brewpubs.
“We welcome architects, artists, designers, interior designers, realtors, engineers, contractors, property investors, building managers, Modernist homeowners, materials and furnishings dealers, and anyone with a huge crush on great architecture,” Smart said.
Smart hopes the bi-monthly happy hours, held around the Triangle, will continue building relationships, generating passion about good design, creating strategic alliances, and connecting people around Modernist architecture.
Natty Greene’s is located at 505 West Jones Street in Raleigh. For directions, visit www.nattygreenes.com.
