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 would be 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 three-fold, 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 such as Wright, Neutra, Kundig, Ain, Arahuete, Gehry, Gropius, Soriano, Meier, Jones, Lautner, and many more. 

Warning:  very, very addictive.  There are over 17,500 photos and videos. You could spend hours here.  You probably will.

NCMH's major initiatives are:



NCMH's architecture education initiative for 9th and 10th graders in North Carolina.

NCMH's statewide competition for excellence in residential Modernist architecture. 
Vote for your favorite house in the 2014 Matsumoto Prize!


NCMH actively protects North Carolina's endangered Modernist houses under threat
of destruction.
