Modern Arch. Preserv. Project of Tucson & AIA Home Tour

Posted by Alison on behalf of MAPP, please contact MAPP directly for more info


The Southern Arizona Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA-SAC) and the Modern Architecture Preservation Project of Tucson (MAPP) are presenting the 13th Annual 2005 AIA Tucson Home Tour. This charity fund-raising event will be held on Sunday, Oct. 9th, 2005, from 10 am to 4 pm. This year's self-guided tour will feature exceptional mid-century Modern homes from the post-World War II period (1945 and 1975) to promote public recognition and appreciation of Modern architecture in Tucson. Many of these homes have not previously been open to the public, and feature such Tucson modern pioneers as William Wilde, Art Brown, and Judith Chafee. The $15 tour includes a map, a printed page of information at each house with text and images of the house and other work by the architect, and scheduled docent talks. Proceeds from Tour ticket sales will go to 'Habitat for Humanity' to assist a local family in their dream of home ownership. For more information regarding Architecture Week 2005 events, times and locations, contact the AIA-SAC office at 323-2191 or visit our web site at

Road Trip anyone? We're heading down South and anyone wanting to caravan is welcome. We're meeting at the Ikea parking lot at 8am sharp. My number is 480-213-9944 if you're interested. I'll take tons of pics for Pixie to post for those that can't make it. This year should be a delight for those of us that love Mid-Century housing!

jonny-come-lately here...

I'll be in Tucson next weekend (Oct. 21-23). My wife and I will have Sunday to look at Tucson Mid-Century Modern homes. I know the tour is over, but are there any maps or addresses available so we can drive by? I know there are some neighborhoods off south Kolb we plan to hit.

A while back, I posted up asking if anyone had located the Cliff May prefab homes built in '54-'55. Any luck finding these?
