Digressing from fire stuff, our attention turns to architecture. Mrs. Blogger brings this topic to our attention. Did you know that the Triangle has the fourth largest concentration of mid-century modern homes in the nation? We learned this in North Carolina Signature magazine. The March/April 2009 issue features a features on mid-century modern homes. The piece includes a profile of several Raleigh residences, including the George Matsumoto House at 821 Runnymede Road, shown below. Don't have a subscription to that rag? Check out Triangle Modernist Houses, an extensive resource about the style, the buildings, and the designers. (How many homes are we talking about. They total 626, by their count.) There's even a couple Google tools, to help with the driving tour that you'll want to take. Here's their annotated Google map, and they also have a Google Earth aid. Go forth and discover.
