Modern Phoenix Week
Celebrating the rich history of midcentury design, the 15th annual Modern Phoenix Week will take place March 15-24. The diverse range of activities includes talks, walks, a bicycle tour of midcentury icons in downtown Phoenix, and guided tours of architectural icons such as the 1956 Hotel Valley Ho (where Natalie Wood, Bing Crosby and Janet Leigh all stayed). This year’s theme is “It’s All Good in the Haverhood,” as an homage to the 200,000 tract homes by architects Ralph Haver and Jimmie Nunn that came to be built throughout Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado; a self-driving tour of approximately a dozen Haver homes will be held March 24. Also of interest: an exclusive look at Al Beadle’s architectural drawings at Arizona State University.
