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 the lives of their architects

Then explore the archive of residential Modernist masters such as Wright, Neutra, Kundig, Ain, Arahuete, Gehry, Gropius, Soriano, Meier, Lautner, and many more. 

Warning:  very, very addictive.  There are over 17,000 photos and videos. You could spend hours here.  You probably will.

NCMH's major initatives are:



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

NCMH's statewide competition for excellence in residential Modernist architecture.



Donate any amount to NCMH for our missions of documentation, preservation, and promotion of Modernist houses.  Donations are tax-deductible.
