WORLD ARCHITECTURE / 10 DAYS OF MODNESS
PHOENIX MID-CENTURY MODERN TOURS AHEAD
If history repeats itself tickets for the Modern Phoenix Week home tour highlighting 1950/’60s architecture may be gone by the time anyone reads this as the highly prized ducats went on sale Feb.1, 2017.
But it never hurts to check. And, if the home tour is sold out the event website has a huge menu of other Mod tours and events, including a tour of the famed Valley Ho Hotel by Paolo Soleri.
Modern Phoenix Week
When: Friday, March 24-Sunday, April 2.
Where: Various locations in Phoenix.
Admission: Many events free with RSVP, workshops and tours range from $10 to $70, home tour $40 per person, Docomomo Symposium $250 for Docomomo US members and $300 for non-members. Tickets go on sale Feb. 1. The home tour sells out very quickly.
One of the highlights of Modern Phoenix Week, the home tour on April 2, lets visitors explore Midcentury Modern homes in different Phoenix neighborhoods. This year, the focus will be the Paradise Gardens neighborhood, an area known for its Alfred Newman Beadle homes, reported Laura Latzko in the Arizona Republic.
“Beadle, an architect in Phoenix who designed the Case Study project Triad Apartments, is known for the openness, simplicity and elegance of his designs,” Latzko said.
