What we see as the squares and rectangles of ordinary buildings, they see as proportion used artfully and skillful design conforming to the needs of modern life. The Triangle chapter of the American Institute of Architects hopes to share this passion for design with its second tour of well-designed residences this weekend.</p><p></p> Thu, 29 Sep 2011 17:06:00 +0000 Frank Stasio & Amber Nimocks 8005 at http://wunc.org
