Santa Fe architecture

Here are a couple of images of Santa Fe's ubiquitous southwestern-style adobe architecture. In this setting it is quite nice and blends in well with the landscape. I like the roundness of the walls and buildings. The walls especially seem to foster a sense of privacy, but at the cost of open space. It might be a bit difficult to live here if one were claustrophobic. The architecture is not recommended for earthquake country, either, as California has discovered.
