Phoenix Mid-Century Marvels

March 20, 2009

Phoenix experienced unprecedented growth just after the Second World War.  With this growth came new architecture in the form of offices, banks, stores and government buildings, to name a few.  These buildings are disappearing from the landscape.

The Phoenix Historic Preservation Office is embarking on a survey and designation project of postwar architecture.  The project will document the best examples of the period and bring attention to their significance.

Eligible buildings will be placed on the Phoenix Historic Property Register and the National Register of Historic Places.  The Historic Buildings Photography Project, completed by Phoenix Office of Arts & Culture in cooperation with the Phoenix Historic Preservation Office, presents a selection of 25 buildings and sites that represent Phoenix’s postwar architectural heritage.  To download the Mid-Century Marvel brochure, click here.
