Tribute to Gnosis

gnosis (no’sis) n. (Classical Greek): intuitive apprehension of spiritual truths. wisdom; knowledge; recognition

Gnosis, Ltd. was founded to seek and share the knowledge of our collective creative experience. Together, through instigation, interpretation and documentation, we were witness to the impassioned soul that unites all human genius.

Dear Friends of Gnosis, as of 2014, this organization no longer exists as a nonprofit entity but I hope you will continue to love the questions and the sheer joy of the learning journey Gnosis has been for us.

Some of Gnosis’ celebrated work is still available and can be purchased:

ConstructionsConstructions: Buildings in Arizona by Alfred Newman Beadle

Constructions has been out of print for over 15 years, but now, due to persistent demand, Gnosis, Ltd. has published a second edition, revised, with an updated chronology and bibliography, and a new Foreword.

Using the vocabulary of glass and steel, Alfred Newman Beadle (1927-1998) transformed the desert with his own brand of Modernism for over 40 years. His notable achievements include high rise buildings, multiple-family housing and apartment complexes, single family homes and commercial office structures, warehouses and retail buildings.
