Event description

Description

Design Within Reach is thrilled to participate in Modern Phoenix Week by welcoming Wendell Burnette to the Studio for the third lecture in our ongoing monthly series exploring modernism in desert architecture. Burnette opened his practice in 1996 after years of self-study, training at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture and extensive global travel.

His practice is concerned with space and light, context and place, and with the environment and landscapes in which we live, leading to a diverse portfolio that includes custom residences located locally and nationally, public commissions in our community such as the Palo Verde Library / Maryvale Community Center, the Children’s Museum of Phoenix and the Scottsdale Teen Center, and Resorts and Spas worldwide, including the much acclaimed Amangiri Resort.

Burnette will join us in the Studio to discuss his life and work and how modernism has informed his design approach. Refreshments will be served. This event is free with RSVP.
