Modern Phoenix Week was March 23 - April 1, 2012

A week of tours, talks, fashion, film and fun!
Our 8th Annual home tour was held in the Marion Estates neighborhood on the border of Phoenix and Paradise Valley. This hilly enclave of custom homes was built out from 1952 - 1962 and features hidden gems by architects Ralph Haver, Blaine Drake and Al Beadle alongside contemporary remodels by Tennen Studio and Woolsey Studio.
