Burton Barr Library

Landmarks

This distinctive building appears like something out of a science fiction novel and certainly turns the whole notion of libraries being boring, dusty dens on its head. Most striking is the ribbed copper that partially covers the exterior of Phoenix's Burton Barr Library, as well as the computer-controlled louvers and shade sails used to reduce the glaring desert heat.

Built in 1898, the Arizona Capitol is now restored to resemble its 1912 appearance, the year Arizona gained statehood.
