How Archaeology teaches Sustainable Architecture

Rachel Preston Prinz is an architectural designer and historian who has worked in the cathedrals and villas of Europe, as well as alongside Americans specializing in religious architecture, historic preservation and ultra-high-end custom residential design. Rachel believes that New Mexico’s archaeological record is interesting in its traditional form of ruminating on the past, and even more intriguing when the lessons learned from studying ancient building forms are integrated into today’s designs by modern architects and builders. The result can be a visually stunning, sustainable architecture that’s not only truly green, but also a reflection on our rich heritage.

Presented at TEDxABQ in Albuquerque, NM, 2011.
