Docomomo US TOUR DAY 2011: ARIZONA
|Tour||Phoenix Midcentury Modern Bus Tour|
|Modern Phoenix |
|Date/Time||Sunday October 16, 2011|
Celebrate Phoenix’s Midcentury Modern design heritage with a five-hour guided architectural tour by bus. Participants will gain exclusive access to five of Phoenix’s most loved commercial and residential midcentury modern properties and neighborhoods including Paradise Gardens and Sunnyslope.
Homeowners, architects and interior designers will be available to discuss their process and materials. Alison King, the founding editor of ModernPhoenix.net  and coordinator behind the wildly popular Modern Phoenix Home Tours will ride along and orient the group to different modern neighborhoods you’ll drive by along the way. She’ll also describe the significance of each architect and the building’s contribution to the story of Modernism in the Valley. Photography is encouraged at most locations. Tours are hosted on October 16 to best coincide with National AIGA Conference events.
