The Plazas of New Mexico
New Mexico History Museum
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Lecture and book signing

Pueblo plazas, Spanish plazas and Anglo courthouse squares dot nearly every town in New Mexico. Learn more about these community gathering sites – and the New Urbanist call to revitalize them – at 2 pm on Sunday, Oct. 16, when architectural historian Chris Wilson, photographer Miguel Gandert, and architect/urbanist José Zelaya discuss and sign their new book, The Plazas of New Mexico. The event is free with admission; Sundays are free to NM residents.

Through archival photographs and Gandert’s modern-day images, the book depicts an array of plazas ranging from Acoma, Taos, Las Vegas and Santa Fe to Albuquerque, Socorro, Portales and Mesilla. Along with architect and urban designer Stefanos Polyzoides, a founder of the Congress for the New Urbanism, the authors and other contributors document the design of these places and the rich heritage of community celebrations that help sustain them.
