MA+DS & Marvin Windows present Modern Home Tours!

Participating homes in the San Antonio MA+DS Modern Home Tour will open their doors for viewing from 11AM – 4PM on Saturday, April 8.

The Modern Architecture + Design Society (MA+DS) returns to San Antonio, after a six year absence, on Saturday, April 8, 2017. During the San Antonio MA+DS Home Tour, visitors are able to explore a select number homes in the Alamo City that exemplify modern architecture and living. Tour-goers will get the inside scoop from homeowners on what it’s like to live in a modern home, and talk to the architects to find out from where they found their inspiration. This is every San Antonian’s chance to see the inside of ‘that unique, cool house you always drive by…’

The Modern Architecture + Design Society (MA+DS) is a new multi-media property that aims to create a vibrant, global community of modern architecture and design enthusiasts through multiple platforms that inspire engagement with the people, places, and things that define the “modern” movement. While the Modern Home Tour remains the cornerstone of the operation, MA+DS is a global effort to spread modernism.

The San Antonio MA+DS Home Tour is presented by Marvin Windows and Doors and will showcase 4 to 6 homes, including designs from Craig McMahon Architects, C-Sostre Architecture, Oscar E. Flores Design Studio, and Adam Wilson Custom Homes. An after-tour party will feature refreshments and a short Q&A on inspirations for modern design.

Students from the American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS) and International Interior Design Association (IIDA) chapters at University of Texas San Antonio will staff the event. The non-profit organizations are enlisted as the tour’s beneficiary and volunteer support.

Participating homes in the San Antonio MA+DS Home Tour will open their doors for viewing from 11AM – 4PM on Saturday, April 8. All are invited to attend. Tickets for the home tour are $35 in advance online; $40 on the day of the tour. Kids under 12 are free when accompanying their parents.
