Design obsessors and aspiring architecture snobs, take note. Tickets to the 10th annual Modern Phoenix Home Tour go on sale Saturday, February 1.
Organized by Alison King, founder of modernphoenix.net, the annual tour gives attendees a inside look at mid-century Valley homes and typically looks at a particular region or neighborhood. Last year's tour focused on houses west of Central Avenue and included Jim and Amy Adkins' home, which was our favorite stop.
This year's tour will feature stops in the Camelback and Arcadia area. Tickets to the Sunday, April 6, tour will likely sell out quickly, as they have in years past. Leading up to the tour will be Modern Phoenix week, beginning Friday, March 28.
Tickets go on sale via modernphoenix.net at 10 a.m. Saturday, February 1.
Along with the 2014 tour particulars, the full schedule of Modern Phoenix Week will be available at modernphoenix.net/hometour.
