ABOUT THE PHX ARCHITECTURE FORUM
The PHX Architecture Forum seeks to engage the public in an ongoing dialogue about architecture and design in the Phoenix area. We think of architecture as a constructed conversation between people, things, and time; and the Forum as a place where people interested in our built environment can meet and socialize.
