Frank Lloyd Wright Spire
This work of art, which stands proudly at a prominent intersection where Phoenix and Scottsdale meet, proves Frank Lloyd Wright’s visionary genius. Originally designed for the Arizona State Capitol, but never built, this steel structure is lit from within and brightens the night sky with hues of blue and green that can be seen from miles around. Make your way to the Promenade Mall, at the intersection of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Scottsdale Road, to explore it up close.
First Christian Church
The First Christian Church in north-central Phoenix features a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building called “One of the ten best church buildings ever built in America”. The building was originally designed in 1950, with the drawings presented to the public as a university building for a Phoenix seminary that ceased operations before it could be built. Luckily, Wright’s widow, Olgivanna Lloyd Wright, allowed First Christian Church to use the plans for their growing congregation so architecture aficionados can pay homage to this visionary.
Phoenix has a vibrant Mid-Century Modern (MCM) shopping scene. Some favorites include Modern on Melrose, offering everything from MCM furniture, art and barware to industrial salvage letters and décor; and Modern Manor, specializing in MCM furniture and décor from the 1940s through the 1970s. Stop by Retro Ranch, which features everything you wish you’d never discarded through your childhood, as well as statement-making clothing, accessories and furniture.
