Modernist architecture is international in scope! Sponsored by Durham County Library, Durham Technical Community College, NC NOMA, AIA Triangle, Diversify Architecture, Durham Public Schools, NC Modernists, The Nasher Museum, Durham Library Foundation, and Cassilhaus Mayberry Modernism, North Carolina's Architectural Legacy is a community-wide celebration of North Carolina's modernist architectural legacy and the impact of pioneering architects, designers and modernist theory on American popular culture and contemporary history. 

U.S. Modernist CEO George Smart will present a captivating lecture on N.C. modernist architecture followed by the screening of short documentary films on architectural giants such as Mies van der Rohe, Philip Johnson, Julius Shulman and John Lautner.
