Mark your calendars, modernism fiends: Tickets are now on sale for a tour of modern Phoenix architecture on the West Side.

On October 6, architect and community activist Taz Loomans will guide a bus-full of viewers through commercial architecture in celebration of the sixth U.S. installment of Docomomo Tour Day.

Docomomo is an international organization with a focus in architecture and conservation. Its annual architecture tour is aimed to bring architects, historians, members, students, and community members together to share history and encourage and protect the community's architectural landmarks.

The event on October 6, will kick off at 9 a.m. at Copenhagen Imports, 1701 East Camelback Road in Scottsdale (formerly Lou Regester building by Ralph Haver ) and will continue to The Federal Savings Bank, St. Vincent's Church, and The 409 W. Osborn Office Building. Coffee and biscotti will be provided and there will be plenty of opportunities for creative documentation.

Tickets are $45 and are available through the DOCOMOMO eventbrite page.
