This mountain west state is known as one of the four corner states and home to the infamous Grand Canyon. Arizona is the sixth largest state in the U.S. The capitol city, Phoenix has developed from a city which the economy was primarily agricultural, reliant on the “5C’s” (copper, cattle, climate, cotton and citrus) to a city of over a million people and several fortune 100 companies. Phoenix is home to the Arizona State Capitol building, which was completed in 1900. This building’s design is optimized for the harsh desert climate of Arizona. Built with thick masonry walls and materials indigenous to Arizona, including malapai, granite, and the copper dome.
