The Portfolios of Haver & Nunn 1952 - 1967
AKA Ralph Haver & Associates, Haver Nunn & Jensen
Haver Nunn & Collamer and Haver Nunn & Nelson. "Haver, Nunn-the-less!"
From 1945 until the mid-80s, Ralph Haver and his associates practiced architecture in Phoenix, Arizona, leaving an indelible imprint on the way we live, work, learn, shop, worship and bank. As a native in the Valley of the Sun during the 50s, 60s and 70s, its possible you have experienced life in more Haver-designed buildings than any other firm of its time. See how many buildings you recognize!
