Committed to the ethics of the Case Study Program and the vocabulary of building with glass and steel, the late modernist Al Beadle brought Modern Architecture to the Arizona desert.  In 1993, ASU’s B. Michael Boyle and Diane Upchurch produced a catalogue to accompany an exhibit at the College of Architecture and Design which showcased Beadle’s work.  “Constructions: Buildings in Arizona by Alfred Newman Beadle” is the only written resource on Arizona’s own, revered architect.  It can be purchased at the Gnosis website.
