UCLA to Show Architectural Contest Items

October 18, 1987

Architectural drawings, plans and models based on entries in the 1985 competition to design a new Phoenix government center will be displayed Tuesday through Dec. 13 at UCLA's Wight Art Gallery.

More than 100 of the world's architects submitted entries for the development of a 12-block area east of the Arizona State Capitol.

Highlighting the exhibit will be presentations of the four finalists: Ricardo Legoretta, Mexico City; Michael Graves, Princeton; Arata Isozaki, Tokyo, and the winner, UCLA architecture professor Barton Myers, who has offices in Los Angeles and Toronto.

Phoenix sought designs providing easy pedestrian access to public offices and services to encourage citizen participation in government.
