Traditions: Southwestern United States

Traditional building, architecture, and urbanism of the southwestern United States is responsive to its culture, climate, and materials. From the Mesa Verde to Santa Fe, from ancestral to colonial traditions, whether stone masonry or adobe, southwestern traditions of building in the United States provide a rich resource for designers today and a wealth of examples of a climate-adaptive architecture.

“Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to 1300.
