Just a quick note to let modern architecture fans in Atanta that the Modern Atlanta Home Tour is this weekend. I am told that most of the homes are within 6 miles of Midtown (except for the Serenbe houses in Palmetto, GA). This is good news for those of us who don’t like to use up gas going O.T.P.* I am really excited that the house pictured above is down my street.** I pass by it all the time and I’ve always wanted to check out the interior.
The tours will take place tomorrow and Sunday, from 11a.m.-4 p.m.. Tickets are $10 for students, $30 for a one-day pass and $50 for a two-day pass. You can purchase your tickets online, at the DWR store, and a few other places; click here for more information. Do note that if you purchase online, you still need to pick up your wristband and map beforehand, which is a bit of a pain for those of us who are spoiled by getting everything we want online all the time! However, just based on the three homes shown in this post, it seems worth the trip.
P.S. Buying a ticket also enters you to win this amazing Nais Chair by Alfredo HÃ¤berli, courtesy of Domus. Alright, I have to go buy my ticket and then use “The Secret” for the rest of the afternoon to make sure I win.
*O.T.P. – “Outside the Perimeter”: Those of us who live in the city fear going beyond the perimeter created by I-285, due to fear of traffic, endless stoplights, gated communities, and the proliferation of big box stores, among other things. I also fear going to Buckhead to get my ticket for fear of the extreme road rage that takes over my soul somewhere around the intersection of Piedmont and Sidney Marcus.
**Now if we could only get that Mockbee house two streets over on the tour next year, all of my nosy neighbor curiosities would be fully satisfied!
