In Atlanta, a city known for its architecture of traditional charm and style, modernist homes can elicit curiosity and, often, envy. This weekend, you’ll have the chance to see inside some of those homes instead of just driving past.
Modern Atlanta is offering its annual architecture tour on June 7-8 from 10AM to 4 PM as part of its Design Is Human Week, which includes panel discussions, product launches, and other events. Billed as “a shining example of the United States’ new language of bold urbanism, proudly projecting its creative potential to the rest of the world,” the event includes 12 residential locations throughout the metro area. Among them are the Florian-Hart home in the Old Fourth Ward and the Parrish-Quinn residence adjacent to Piedmont Park.
Each attendee of the Architecture Tour receives a guidebook and admission to the “Design Is Human Exhibition” on June 6 at the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (351 Peachtree Hills Ave, Suite 403).
Tickets for the MA Architecture Tour are $35 ($25 for students). Visit the website for more details.
