Tucson Modernism Week: Video Sneak Peek
Tucson Modernism captured the exuberance of the post-WWII era, and is defined by clean, simple lines and a casual informality. In the southern Arizona desert the movement has come to be defined as Sonoran Modern with the use of regional materials, adaptation to the desert climate and an emphasis on indoor/outdoor living. For more information on this annual event, typically happening in October, visit TucsonMod.com.
