Architecture You Love

The 2014 and 2015 T4A series is powered by Emilie Huin / 501 Realty,
specializing in Modernist houses in the Triangle.

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, generating passion about good design, creating strategic alliances, and connecting people.  There are no presentations -- just come join the fun and make new design friends!
