A few pictures of the architecture of Santa Fe taken by a friend of mine, David Moore.

it's amazing how the pueblo style show some striking similarties with other vernacular forms of traditional architecture in Africa and some parts of the Mediterannean....nice photo for the museum of fine arts which reflect the pueblo revival style and the I also noticed good gradation and a nice play with tonality of earthy colours
a nice colour and texture study which shows an understanding for the character and the spirit of the place in a contemporary design, I mean the design of the community bank...no blaring or shinning surfaces or an unexpected accumulation of razor sharp ice stalactites ;-)

Very unpretencious architecture. The community bank is very sympathetic okay - but isn't there some sort of moratorium on new development in Santa Fe? Water concerns?
