Most people are surprised, even shocked, to learn North Carolina has the third largest concentration of Modernist houses in America. Who knew that little ol' Mayberry is a center for great residential architecture? 

North Carolina Modernist Houses (NCMH) is the world's  largest open digital archive for residential Modernist architecture.  We are a nonprofit 501C3 educational archive with a heartfelt mission for the documentation, preservation, and promotion of Modernist houses. Explore NCMH's extensive archives of North Carolina Modernist houses and their architects. View videos of North Carolina's mid-century Modernist architects. Then explore the largest open digital archive of residential Modernist masters including Wright, Rudolph, Neutra, Kundig, Ain, Arahuete, Gehry, Gropius, Soriano, Meier, Jones, Lautner, and many more.


NCMH was named by the Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation as the official archive for Rudolph's residential work.

NCMH's major outreach initiatives are:

2015 George Matsumoto Prize Competition

Thirst4Architecture Happy Hours are monthly Modernist design networking events open to the public, sponsored by Emilie Huin/Triangle Modern Homes at 501 Realty.  Free! 

Macon Smith Research Grants are awarded to support research on Modernist houses.  Anyone can apply at any time; you need not be an architect or an academic.  You can just be a motivated fan!  Virtually no one applies for these; your chances of getting selected are very good.  Hint, hint.
