Gnosis 2008 Book Release Event:

Modernist architect Al Beadle (1927 – 1998), who created a new vocabulary for building on challenging sites in the harsh, arid landscape of the majestic Sonoran Desert, left a 40-year legacy in the Valley. Much of his built environment is undocumented and few resources referencing his work are available.

Originally published in 1993 in a very small edition, Constructions: Buildings in Arizona by Alfred Newman Beadle is a long out-of-print book still in demand, no doubt because awareness of the importance of his work in the history of modern building has spread from the narrower professional community to the wider public and is still growing.

hosted by Gnosis, Ltd., Nancy Beadle, Eddie Jones/Jones Studio, Inc.
