Five Triangle-area homes displaying outstanding design features will be open to the public Saturday during the American Institute of Architects annual tour.

Four of the homes were chosen by a jury of architects based on criteria such as overall design, quality, ability to meet client needs, harmony with the site, and other factors. The fifth home is a 1957 award-winning design by James Murray Webb, formerly a member of the UNC-Chapel Hill City and Regional Planning School.

The homes will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Cost for the tour is $15 online through noon Saturday; $20 at the open home locations in Cary, Raleigh and Chapel Hill.

The self-guided tour is sponsored by the 750-member Triangle Section of the American Institute of Architects.
