The Triangle region of North Carolina is a little-known hotbed of outstanding modern architecture with roots that trace back to the Bauhaus and has helped to shape the history of American modern architecture. While the Triangle has seen a great increased interest in Modern architecture, the understanding of this design and the reasons and history behind it, have not been shared in a clear and meaningful way. There is an information gap between what is appreciated by architects and by the general public.

Triangle Modern Architects documents the rich history and unique cultural significance of a region that is one of the most important on the national map of modern design. Over the last 75 years, the architecture in this area has grown to creatively combine innovation and technology with the area's history, culture, unique landscape, and built context. And, with the famous Bauhaus School, one of the birthplaces of Modernism, celebrating 100 years since its founding, and the NC State School of Architecture nearing 75 years, this is a benchmark moment to analyse and appreciate the resulting body of exceptional architecture, which are a local and national cultural treasure.
