Central Arizona College in Maricopa, Arizona by SmithGroupJJR

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

Article source: SmithGroupJJR

Known for its history as a pre-railroad stagecoach town, the town of Maricopa has balanced its agricultural and Native American identities for the past century. Most recently Maricopa, a community 40 miles south of Phoenix, has been chronicled by the New York Times as a bedroom community boom town gone bust. Central Arizona College has made an investment in the community and is betting on its future. This campus represents a glimmer of hope in an area struck by the national recession.

STAAB RESIDENCE in Scottsdale, Arizona by Chen + Suchart Studio, LLC

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

Article source: Chen + Suchart Studio, LLC

The context for this site consists of larger homes on one-acre lots.  Aesthetically, the neighboring houses’ architectural language is more often than not, associated with speculative developer trends and styles, rather than an integrated understanding of the site, the views, and other opportunities.  As a result, the project required a strategy which would edit out the immediate context of this neighborhood while focusing on distant views of the McDowell Mountains to the north and the valley to the south and southwest.  The project also sought to create a protected courtyard space for the backyard and pool area as an immediate focus for the lower level of the house in contrast to the second level taking advantage of the more distant views.

Article source: John Douglas Architects

This 1975 performing arts center was one of the most notable projects designed by the late Arizona architect Bennie Gonzales, FAIA, who also designed Scottsdale’s signature municipal structures, including the city hall and main library, which are linked to the arts center by the park-like Scottsdale Civic Center. Gonzales was known for his simple, pure forms that echoed both classic Southwestern and Native-American architectural themes. Gonzales designed the 100,000-square-foot arts center to include a large main theater, a smaller, secondary theater, gallery space, offices and a vast central atrium.

Article source: Marlene Imirzian & Associates Architects 

Through simple sustainable design, the Sunnyslope Sustainable Office shows the potential to shift the paradigm of ubiquitous small Phoenix commercial lots from asphalt covered parking to a sustainable, urban place.  Combining repurposed, recycled materials with native desert landscaping the modest 1950s building was renovated for the Architect’s office.  At the entrance a courtyard of translucent panels is a welcoming entry and provides usable outdoor space.
