When it comes to modern architecture in residential design and build, Atlanta doesn't come to mind for most folks. Rather, when one thinks of Atlanta architecture, large southern Antebellum homes, Colonial and Greek Revivals are a first thought. While the majority of homes around the Atlanta metro are more traditional in style and design, we do have our fair share of modern homes.

On June 1-9, some of Atlanta's premiere modern homes will be showcased and open to tour. As a modern architecture enthusiast, I enjoy the clean lines, the use of different building materials and the minimalist look and feel. Spans of glass and large open spaces are also favorites.

Excerpts and further details of the tour are highlighted below from a feature article written by Felicia Feaster of the Atlanta Journal Constitution.  

"Since 2007, the Modern Atlanta Home Tour has offered metro Atlantans the opportunity to consider a reality beyond colonials, bungalows, Tudors and Cape Cods.

Modern Atlanta is a week long series of fashion shows, seminars, lectures and exhibitions held every year that culminates in the home tour. And each year, said Modern Atlanta co-founder Elayne DeLeo, the self-guided tour’s popularity grows, just as the prominence of modern booms in the city. There were more than 2,500 visitors at last year's tour.

DeLeo said she has several goals for the Modern Atlanta tour, “to promote the architects, builders, designers and manufacturers who are creating modern and contemporary homes,” as well as “educate the public on the benefits of modern design and integration of sustainable and green building practices.”

This year’s Modern Atlanta tour features a total of 10 homes around the metro area. The weekend tour is from 10:30a to 4p and ticket prices at $25 for students and $50 for adults. Ticket proceeds go to various Atlanta charitable organizations. For early bird tickets and to confirm pricing, checkout: https://atlantadesignfestival.net/tickets and enter promo code:
