  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) December 01, 2011 - Paul Hobgood, a design associate in the award-winning architectural firm Kenneth E Hobgood Architects in Raleigh, has been selected to serve on Triangle Modernist Houses' 2012 Advisory Council.

    TMH is a 501C3 nonprofit established in 2007 to preserve and promote Modernist architecture in the Triangle. The award-winning website is now the largest educational and historical archive for Modernist residential design in America.

    Selected from a cross-section of the design community, Advisory Council members support and improve TMH's programming, including popular house tours, architecture movies, trips, presentations, and many other events.

    Paul Hobgood graduated from North Carolina State University's College of Design in 2008 with a Masters in Architecture. He was a finalist for the Kamphoefner Honor Fellowship, an annual award that recognizes the College's outstanding Master of Architecture student. He has worked at Kenneth E. Hobgood Architects since 2004, and has served as a design architect on a number of the firm's modern, award-winning projects since then.

    "I'm excited about serving on the Advisory Council for two reasons," Hobgood said. "One, it's an opportunity to further enhance a resource - TMH -- that spotlights the Triangle's rich history as it pertains to modernist homes and architects, since I've spent most of my life in and around modernist architecture. Two, I have a genuine sense of pride when it comes to the Triangle. I'm also intrigued by the broad spectrum of interests and specialties that comprise this year's Advisory Council. It should make for a spirited debate/process."

    The 16-member Advisory Council meets twice a year at the modern Durham home of TMH founder and board chair George Smart.

    "The Advisory Council is part focus group, part brain trust," said Smart. "The members' experience and insights into design and preservation have helped us create so many popular events over the years that our website is now up to 40,000-plus views a month. I'm looking forward to the innovations that will no doubt come from the 2010 Advisory Council."
