A tale of adobe, feather and pottery from the Desert


The rich cultural history of the Pueblo of Isleta inspired the new hotel and convention center with three metaphors influencing the architecture and design: adobe, feathers and pottery. The spatial experience includes a 7-story glass atrium with feather-like sunscreens; an outdoor "Spa-Jar" in the style of Isleta pottery, and a striking barrel vaulted pre-function space that mimics traditional adobe architecture.
