Southern Architect was the official magazine of North Carolina’s AIA (American Institute of Architects) State Chapter. Published monthly, the two-color magazine archived North Carolina’s evolving mid-century development in architecture and design. Primarily highlighting churches, schools, offices, and private residences, the magazine offered a unique opportunity to view the work and lives of North Carolina’s mid-century modernist architects. In 1965, after running under the title of Southern Architect for ten years, the title was officially changed to North Carolina Architect and by 1970 the publication was reduced to a bi-monthly printing. In the late 1990’s the publication changed names once more to the title of Architext, but was soon restored to its former name in the summer of 2008. Today the full color magazine continues to offer project news, insight on the work and lives of North Carolina architects and others alike.
