A modern home in Leucadia that is on the home tour.

Modern architecture is increasingly popular in San Diego amid the classic Spanish Revival style, and a special tour Saturday will highlight six of the latest new homes and remodels.

The 2015 San Diego Modern Home Tour offers full tours of homes from Leucadia to La Mesa and an opportunity to speak with the architects of each.

The event also benefits the San Diego Architectural Foundation, whose mission is to promote outstanding architecture, planning and urban design throughout the San Diego region.
