TMH founder and director George Smart points out how fitting it is to hold this T4A happy hour in the Capital Bank building. It is frequently referred to as the “Little Seagram Building” for bearing a striking resemblance to a Mies van der Rohe skyscraper in New York City.

“The building was designed by New York architects Emery Roth and Raleigh’s Milton Small in 1966 for BB&T,” he said, “and it’s a terrific example of a mid-century modern office tower. I’m sure everyone who comes to the September event will not only enjoy the networking and refreshments, but will also enjoy being in a Small-designed commercial structure. We’re very grateful to PBC+L for giving us this opportunity.”

Thirst4Architecture events are intended to build relationships, generating passion about good design, create strategic alliances, and connect people,  Smart said. It’s all interaction. There are no presentations or PowerPoint slides. Come enjoy the refreshments, enter for door prizes, and make new friends and contacts.

There is no charge for attendance and the sponsoring firm provides all refreshments.
