You can’t click a link without seeing a hairpin leg table or breeze block wall.

And, here in the Phoenix metro area, mid-century architecture has made its mark. In Post World War II Phoenix, architects like Al Beadle and Ralph Haver could be found everywhere. But there were many more who contributed to the era.
