Modern Phoenix Neighborhood Network

I'm Alison King - aka PixelPixie - and I'm the founder of Modern Phoenix, in collaboration with my husband Matthew who's driven us around Arizona hunting down midcentury architecture. I'm also Associate Professor of Design at The Art Institute of Phoenix, where I teach Design History. He's an instructor there, too.

Since 2003 we've been publishing Arizona's largest image bank of midcentury architecture. Some of Arizona's finest writers, design researchers, photographers and historians have contributed to The Modern Phoenix Neighborhood Network.

We pride ourselves on not only bringing you plenty of professional opinions, but fact-filled primary source material that helps you understand our region's design history better, make sound decisions, and acquire your own modern property. Our annual home tour and Modern Phoenix Week helps get you inspired and take it to the next level.

If you're in search of a modern property, try out the Marketplace on our message boards where you can find homes for sale, swap information and share resources about your projects and passions. You can also ask to join our closed group The Modern Phoenix Marketplace on Facebook, stocked with people buying and selling modern things just like you!

I look forward to seeing you in our forums or at one of our events soon! Don't hesitate to introduce yourself or join our ranks as a volunteer.
