There are some great organizations springing up to celebrate the Mid-Century Modern architectural movement in the MetroABQ. One such group, Modern Albuquerque, organized a fabulous Mid Mod Home Tour & I am excited to see some of the other guided tours they have in store.
Five Unique Mid-Century Modern Homes

The fourth stop on the ABQ Mid Mod Home Tour was to a North Campus neighborhood near Indian School Road. It featured a stunning home & property: to get inside, you cross a steel bridge over a rather utilitarian moat, seen above. The folks crossing & hanging out on the bridge provide good context for the size of the moat.
Below are three scenes facing the home from the garden-terraced backyard & one from in the living room; more floor-to-ceiling windows & wood ceiling beams. There is great perspective in the second image below, which shows the dual-levels of the home--the person standing in the middle of the image on the right-hand-side provides context for the enormity of the space.

Now walk around the garden & notice the sculptures from different angles--it's a whole new experience with each new gaze at the figures. Below are numerous views of The Head, easy to access & prominently displayed in the garden. Read More
