Modern Homes Take Center Stage in Vancouver
The Modern Architecture + Design Society brings its Modern Home Tour back to Vancouver for the 5th year in a row.
The event gives residents of British Columbia the rare opportunity to visit and walk-through a selection of six amazing modern private residences, and meet the local architects and builders behind the designs.
During the self-guided event, tour-goers will get the inside scoop from homeowners on what it’s like to live in a modern home, and learn from the architects, builders and designers, where they found inspiration. This is every BC resident’s chance to see the inside of ‘that amazing house on the block…’
As always, KPU’s Wilson School of Design has been named as the Modern Home Tour local non-profit partner and beneficiary. Fashion marketing students will help staff the event, in return for a donation to the school’s program and the opportunity to use the tour as a fundraising vehicle, while also contributing community service hours, a cornerstone of the applied learning that Kwantlen students are known for.
Six homes have been accepted and confirmed for the 2017 Vancouver Modern Home Tour. Based in Austin, Texas, the Modern Architecture + Design Society was founded by James Leasure in 2010 as Modern Home Tours, to introduce modern architecture and living to people across the nation. Through fun and informative self-guided home tours in dozens of cities across the USA and Canada, the group invites people into some of the most exciting examples of modern architecture and design in the nation.
