The Oasis

Wright's design for the Arizona State Capitol the Oasis utilized the red rocks of Papago Park to, as Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer states, "reflect the characteristic spaciousness and charm of the desert and mountain setting." The property emphasizes the architect’s modern organic architectural taste, with the designs suggesting hefty usage of organic materials like glass and stone. By including water features, Wright borrows from the surrounding landscape of Papago Park and its own lakes.
