Contemporary Phoenix Architecture

Phoenix and its surrounding cities are engaged in a series of public projects that are giving the city of Phoenix and the area a dose of interesting architecture. Quite a statement in a place that usually shuns any sort of government project, yet the amount of new colleges, libraries and other institutions built over the last decade is stunning.

Despite these projects being done by any number of architects, if you look, there is a common thread in the design, an attention to materials and the open lifestyle of the desert.

I have taken a couple of trips to Phoenix and photographed many of these works.

All the photos are here: http://www.pixelmap.com/arizona_modern_arch.html
