Look, we're not bashful about our love for Al Beadle. The Midcentury Modern architect left his mark all over the Valley -- including stops on our favorite Phoenix home tour.
So naturally, we were over the moon when we heard about the free home tour being offered tonight at his famous CSA#1 Triad Apartments in Arcadia.

The Triad, which is Beadle's only Arts and Architecture Case Study in Arizona, was recently sold by AZ Architecture. This 1962 multiple housing structure features three units that share a carport, courtyard, and laundry facility.
Founded by Scott and Debbie Jarson, AZ Architecture is a real estate firm that specializes unique Valley homes ranging from the modern to mid-century, the historic and the new. And while this is the only case study complex in Arizona, several structures can be found throughout California.
Although the complex underwent renovation while AZ Architecture owned it, its new stewards plan to discuss their own plans for preservation during a free public tour from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 29.
During this event, guests can view the one vacant unit in the complex before it becomes available for lease. For more information, visit www.azarchitecture.com or call 480-425-9300.
