NC Modernist Houses and US Modernist are part of a North Carolina 501C3 educational nonprofit archive committed to documenting, preserving, and promoting residential Modernist architecture. Founded in 2007, we initially covered the Triangle area of North Carolina. By 2013, the name changed to NCMH to reflect statewide coverage. NCMH has won 12 local, state, and national awards for leadership in historic preservation, reviving interest in the state's legacy of great architecture. In 2015, we expanded again to USModernist, covering the major 20th century Modernist architects and publications. Our work raises awareness and connects people with their passion for preservation and their future dream homes, and preserves the legacy of exceptional works of design for future generations.
