The added bonus with doing a virtual tour is that tourgoers interested in seeing the homes do not have to block a full day off on their schedule [and] those who live far away don’t have to travel. We like to think of this as a LIVE TV show that you have the option to watch DVR-style at a later time.

The global pandemic’s grip on live events is still strong. As infection rates climb, more leisure activities remain closed or close down again. For lovers of architecture and design, the Modern Architecture + Design Society (MA+DS) is presenting their signature Modern Home Tour series in a way that gives everyone everywhere the opportunity to explore some of the nation’s greatest examples of modern residential architecture.

The Best of the West Virtual Modern Home Tour will take viewers up and down the West Coast and showcase some of the amazing modern homes in the cities where physical tours had to be cancelled this year. The live virtual event takes place on Saturday, December 12, 2020. Attendees will take the tour from the safety and comfort of their home, with the ability to revisit (or catch up on) any segments they missed after the tour ends.

“Our Virtual Houston Tour and the end of the year Best of the West Virtual Modern Home Tour are setting the stage for the content we will deliver throughout 2021, as large-scale in-person events remain paused,” says MA+DS founder, James Leasure. “In our virtual events, we explore the homes as a group and discuss the project’s story, while keeping everyone safe in their own homes.”

A curated selection of homes on the West Coast will be showcased using 3D imaging, while the MA+DS host and architect (or designer, builder) lead viewers through the home and discuss the fine details of the design. Questions will be answered and plenty of expert advice and tips shared. The event honors just a slice of the amazing residential architecture found on the west coast and those who bring it to life year after year.

  • A modern home designed by Hybrid Architects in Seattle, WA
  • A modern mid-century-inspired home in Silicon Valley, CA, designed by M Designs Architects
  • A unit in a modern multi-family dwelling designed by Nakhshab Development & Design in San Diego, CA

“The added bonus with doing a virtual tour is that tourgoers interested in seeing the homes do not have to block a full day off on their schedule,” says Leasure. “Likewise, those who live far away don’t have to travel. We like to think of this as a LIVE TV show that you have the option to watch DVR-style at a later time.”

The Best of the West Virtual Modern Home Tour will run throughout the day on Saturday, December 12, 2020; a full schedule will be posted on the event page.
