The Mission

Many people have never really looked at New Mexican adobe architecture. Some people think adobe is a style of architecture. However, when you look closely, you’ll realize that there are three different styles, or types, of adobe architecture – Pueblo, Territorial, and Northern New Mexico adobe.

In this adventure, you’ll work with a group to thoroughly research one style of adobe architecture. Using maps, pictures and other visual aids, you’ll become an expert capable of designing an adobe house. As you start your research, keep in mind this essential question:

  • What are the adobe architectural styles in New Mexico?
  • What are the reasons for choosing a particular style?
