“Pueblo Deco is a distinctly American architecture and design style developed in the Southwest during the early decades of the twentieth century. Its imagery is influenced by the legends of the Wild West, the motifs of Native American and Hispanic cultures, and the aesthetics associated with Art Deco, Streamline, and Moderne design.
“Architects and interior designers fancifully applied Pueblo Deco details to a wide range of buildings in cities and towns throughout the Southwest and as far away as New York City. In this delightful survey of the style, writer/photographer Carla Breeze has recorded some of its finest examples, including theaters, railroad stations, hotels, courthouses and civic buildings, retail stores and trading posts, residential buildings and many others.
“Carla Breeze is a New York City-based architectural writer and photographer. Born in New Mexico, she has been fascinated by the Pueblo Deco style since childhood, when she first laid eyes on Albuquerque’s fabulous KiMo movie theater.”
