We love Modern. Modern design, Modern architecture, modern living. More than just an aesthetic, “Modern” embodies new construction techniques and materials, and new ways of addressing old problems. “Modern” is not just what you live in, but how you live. From attainability to sustainability, the singular thread that connects “Modern” is an outlook that embraces new possibilities in living and lifestyle.
Based in Austin, Texas, Modern Home Tours, LLC was founded by partners Matt Swinney & James Leasure to introduce Modern architecture and living to people across the nation. Through fun and informative tours in dozens of cities across the United States and Canada, we invite people into some of the most exciting examples of Modern architecture and design in the nation. With carefully selected architects, neighborhoods and architecture, our home tours are unlike anything you’ve ever seen. Not only will you learn about the cutting edge of home design while on our tours, but you might even get an idea or two for your next home project!
As of December 2011, we are incredibly excited to add former managing editor and now contributing editor for Architectural Record, Ingrid Spencer, to our team. Acting as a consultant and our expert on Modern architecture and design, Ingrid helps to curate the homes on all of the Modern Home Tours and provides guidance to ensure that Modern design is constantly at the forefront of each tour.
