Travel to U.S.: West: Santa Fe: Photo 25
This is the Santa Fe Museum of Fine Arts, at the southwest corner of the plaza and just a block from the Palace of the Governors. It's also ground zero for the Santa Fe style incorporated in thousands of buildings today. The line of descent begins at the Acoma pueblo and runs through (1) a 1909 replica of the pueblo that was commissioned by the Colorado Supply Company for its warehouse in Morley, Colorado, (2) the New Mexico Building at the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, and (3) this museum, built in 1917. With the exception of the Acoma pueblo, all were designed by Isaac Rapp. Rapp could have gone in other directions: for example, he also designed another Santa Fe landmark, the Alhambra-ish Scottish Rite Temple.
