A classic in the field of adobe architecture, Taos Adobes defines and discusses the four major architectural periods in New Mexico's known history, with details on various architectural influences from defensive strategies to available local building materials.
Through archival research and interviews with family descendants and neighbors, the text evokes information about who built each house discussed and when, restoration efforts and the buildings' present condition. From a typically small farmhouse to a lavish hacienda, the unique interior and exterior features of each of the structures are brought forth: a nicely detailed window, a fine gate featuring hand-hewn jambs and excellent wrought iron, an unusual portal, a beautiful 'corner' fireplace.
Soft cover with black and white illustrations and photographs throughout.
Condition: Good vintage.
Measures ~8.5"x11". 80 pages.
