PRLog - Jan. 2, 2013 - RALEIGH, N.C. -- (Raleigh, NC) -- For anyone dreaming of a new Modernist house, or interested in  the work of a local architect or designer, or perhaps thinking about architecture as a career, Triangle Modernist Houses (TMH) offers them public the opportunity to enjoy dinners with prominent members of the Triangle's design community in a casual, small-group setting during the nonprofit organization’s annual “Appetite 4 Architecture” (A4A) series.

A4A offers the public a unique opportunity to enjoy easy, informal discussions in an upscale dining environment with direct access to some of the area's best residential architects and designers,” said TMH founder and director George Smart. “Participants are welcome to discuss anything they want with an array of award-winning professionals. They can discuss architecture, homebuilding, furnishings, real estate, or anything else. There are no presentations or PowerPoint slides, just great conversations.”

Each A4A dinner will be held at 18 Seaboard Contemporary American Grill in Raleigh and begin at 7 p.m.  The dinners include three courses (appetizer, entree, dessert) from a pre-selected menu, plus coffee/water/tea, tax, and gratuity. Vegetarian options are available and alcoholic beverages are available separately.

The architects and designers on tap for this year’s series of A4A dinners are:

January 15:  The winners of the 2012 juried Matsumoto Prize for North Carolina Modernist residential architecture: John Reese, Mike Rantilla, and Vinny Petrarca. (Sponsored by VMZINC)

January 22: The “People’s Choice” winners of the 2012 Matsumoto Prize: Adam Sebastian, Will Alphin, and Scott Ogden. (Sponsored by VMZINC)

January 29:  architects Ellen Cassilly and Phil Freelon, along with jazz singer Nneena Freelon. Cassilly designed the Freelons' 2200-square-foot penthouse condominium in downtown Durham's Kress building. (Sponsored by Steelcase)

Tickets are $59 per dinner and are available at www.trianglemodernisthouses.com/a4a. A4A dinners tend to sell out far in advance, Smart said, so he encourages those interested to reserve their tickets soon. The deadline for reserving a seat at each dinner is one week prior.

All proceeds benefit TMH’s ongoing mission to document, preserve, and promote Modernist residential design. For more information and to reserve A4A tickets, go to www.trianglemodernisthouses.com/a4a.htm.
