NCMH connects hundreds of people within the Modernist-architecture-loving public through networking events called Thirst4Architecture (T4A).

These exciting, informal happy hours are free and open to the public. We welcome Modernist homeowners, architects, artists, designers, realtors, engineers, contractors, property investors, building managers, materials and furniture dealers – or anyone with a huge crush on great architecture. 

T4A events focus on building relationships, sharing passion about good design, creating strategic alliances, and connecting people. There are no presentations -- just come join the fun and make new design friends! 

T4A's in the Triangle are sponsored through December 2016 by the RED Collective. Meet agents from RED at the events!
