Description

John Gaw Meem, the principal architect of the Santa Fe style, is well known for his houses and public buildings. Churches for the Southwest is the first book to be devoted to his ecclesiastical architecture, which constitutes an important part of his work. During his long career he designed all or part of twenty-two churches-mission churches for Indian pueblos, including Acoma and Laguna; Catholic churches, especially Cristo Rey in Santa Fe and Sacred Heart Cathedral in Gallup; Episcopal churches, including Holy Faith in Santa Fe, St. Johns Cathedral in Albuquerque, and churches in Clovis, Roswell, Carlsbad, and Las Cruces, New Mexico; Presbyterian churches in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Taos; and the chapel for the Good Shepherd Mission to the Navajo in Fort Defiance, Arizona. These exhibit a surprising variety of styles. A number are in the pueblo mission style that is usually associated with Meems work, but there are also Episcopal churches in the English Gothic style, a Territorial-style Presbyterian church, a Romanesque Catholic cathedral, and the unique church at Fort Defiance.

Churches for the Southwest is beautifully illustrated with new colour photographs of all of Meems churches as well as drawings, plans, and early black-and-white photographs from the Meem Archivesby Tyler Dingee, who worked with Meem and for the University of New Mexico. If you are unfamiliar with this style you are in for a treat - it is not quite like anything else.
