October 18, 2011 (Durham, NC) – Fullsteam Brewery and Tavern in Durham will host Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH) “Thirst4Architecture” (T4A) Happy Hour on Thursday, October 27, from 6-8 p.m. The cash-bar event, sponsored by Ellen Cassilly Architecture and Urban Durham Realty, is free and open to the public.
Triangle Modernist Houses is an award-winning non-profit organization dedicated to documenting, preserving and promoting Modernist residential design. The “Thirst4Architecture” happy hours connect people with a passion for Modernist architecture in an informal setting.
“We welcome architects, artists, designers, interior designers, realtors, engineers, contractors, property investors, building managers, Modernist homeowners, materials and furniture dealers – or anyone with a huge crush on great architecture,” says TMH founder and board chairman George Smart. “T4A events focus on building relationships, generating passion about good design, creating strategic alliances, and connecting people that we know and trust to each other. There are no presentations or PowerPoint slides. We just want folks to join the fun and make new friends and contacts.”
T4A coincides with “Home-Grown, Home-Made: A Celebration of Localism in Durham,” which will also take place at Fullsteam Brewery, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Tickets for that event are $25 at the door. For more information: http://thepeopleschannel.org/homegrown.htm.
