The program will consist of facility, located on a | government owned lot in the "Museum District" of Santa Fe. The site was chosen for its unity of the Arts District and the residential community. Context Statement Santa Fe, New Mexico has a strong culture with regards to art, architecture and local history. The "Santa Fe Style" of architecture or| "Southwest Traditional" architecture that has become popular across the country, is a standard of local building.
