Architecture of the late Pueblo in southern Southwest and Northwest Mexico.

Author(s): Dolores Dávalos Navarro

Year: 2016


The pueblo tradition, located in the American Southwest and Mexican Northwest, has received greater attention in the United States than in Mexico until recently. The present research evaluates how the Mexican Northwest differs from the southern portion of the American Southwest using architectural characteristics.

The use of consecutive rooms at ground level characterize the architecture of the puebloan communities in the study area. These room-blocks had different construction techniques and some of them were multi-story structures. The data collected for this poster comes from thirteen different sites in an effort to trace community activities from patterns identified in architectural spaces that characterized the two sub-regions.

The differences in architectural elements revealed diverse dynamics between the two sub-regions as expressed in similar economies, organizations and activities that took place in different spaces and in different proportions.
