George Smart is an archivist with a passion for Modernist design and architecture. He is also the Executive Director of US Modernist and North Carolina Modernist Houses. Both nonprofit organizations exist to identify, document and preserve Modernist design.
George and I have known each other for some time now and reconnected at Modernism Week in Palm Springs earlier this year. George and I met at the Cambria Surfaces showroom in Palm Dessert. It was great catching up with George and I am really pleased to share this conversation with you.
