Mod South

Architectural photographer, Julius Shulman doing his thing. California, 1960.

And one of the resulting images, Case Study House #22

When I wrote about the Julius Shulman documentary back in September of 2009, I had no idea it would take so long for it to come to Atlanta. But come it will in June to the High Museum. (As much as I love Atlanta, I hate waiting for movies to wind their way around to us). The good news is, not only is the screening free, but it will be a part of Modern Atlanta 2010.

While MA is only in its fourth year, it is quickly becoming one of my favorite design events in town, the highlight of which is the Modern Atlanta Home Tour. You may remember this home from last year's tour, photographed here for Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles.

Yes, this is the same house. Business up front, party in the back.

The interiors use the same logic, morphing from traditional turn-of-the-century roots into something unmistakably modern. I could not get over the guest bedroom, suspended in glass above the kitchen. While Atlanta is not really known so much for modernism, we do have a few surprises to share.

For more on the house and designers, visit Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles and the BLDGS website.

Modern Atlanta events run from June 1st to June 6th. Hope to see you there!

There is a lot going on at MA. Too much for one person to take in. There my still be some volunteer opportunities which can save you some tour ticket money.

I'm looking forward to the Modern Atlanta Tour this year. I was out of town for it last year, but just the images from the homes involved still inspire me.

Glad you're back ;-) Hope Barcelona was as good as it looked from here!

What a very interesting house! I do like juxtaposing modern and traditional, but I usually recommend mixing both styles in each room, as opposed to one traditional room, one modern room. Essentially, I would never create a room that is entirely in one style, or one time period. If you have more pictures of the interiors of this house, I would be very interested to see them.
Thank you!

Just before I moved to Atlanta, someone told me that Modern Atlanta was one of things I had to do. I'm really looking forward to it!

The film is great and it did already play in Atlanta at the Plaza theater back in December. I am looking forward to the Modern Home Show in Atlanta.

Sorry I missed it at Phipps--the parking there is much easier. Glad to know it is good.

I love a bit of modernism and would like to come to the Modern Atlanta Tour at some point.

Hi All~ First time on this site, what a good one! I live in Midtown Atlanta and was a volunteer for the Modern Atlanta festivities this whole week! Second year for me- so much to do and see, wish it could be spread over two weeks. There is also a mid century modern home tour, usually in September brought to us by the organization DOCOMOMO- check it out!
