Modern Home Tours are self-guided driving tours that give local architects a day in the spotlight. At each stop, tourgoers get the rare opportunity to explore the inside and out of five to eight of their area's most amazing private residences. For the architects whose work is on display, it is a live citywide gallery of their cutting-edge designs; for homeowners, it is a unique chance to share their lovingly crafted modern living spaces; and for ticket-holders, it's a day of neighborhood exploration and visual awe.
So far, the Tucson Modern Home Tour includes the work of FORS Architecture, architect Paul Weiner (principal, DesignBuild Collaborative Inc.), and architect Kevin Howard, whose homes feature the ultra-modern landscape designs of Solana Outdoor Living. The final line-up will consist of 5-8 homes in and around the Tucson area.
The Tucson Modern Home Tour is the kick-off for the group's 2014 Winter/Spring National Tour, which covers 11 cities from January to June. As a special promotion for the first time in Tucson, tickets have been discounted from their usual price. Modern Home Tours co-founder and President, James Leasure, says he is looking forward to starting the year in a yet un-visited state.
“It's always exciting to bring our vision to new cities and new neighborhoods, and we believe southern Arizona's unique desert aesthetic will create the opportunity to show homes unlike anywhere else on our schedule.”
Participating homes in the first Tucson Modern Home Tour will open their doors for viewing on Sunday, January 19th, from 11AM – 5PM. Tickets to attend and see every home on the tour are $25 in advance online; they are available for $30 on the day of the tour at all home locations. The tour is self-guided; all are invited to attend. Kids under 12 can accompany their parents for free!
