Architects of the Southwest: Building in the Desert includes residential projects and landscape design works built in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. All the projects highlight the Southwest as an unparalleled region with a rich variety of landscapes—rolling hills, mountains, canyons, mesas, deserts, and volcanoes. These conditions offer unique design challenges and opportunities to create works that adapt to the natural environment—no matter how harsh it is—rather than conquer it while addressing sustainability.

Francesc Zamora Mora, once an architect in San Francisco, now thrives in Barcelona, Spain. Specializing in U.S. projects, he is a distinguished architecture editor with a keen eye for design. His unique background, bridging the architectural landscapes of both cities, enriches his work.

"In the southwestern United States, every building is a mirage of ingenuity, where architecture dances with the desert, transforming sand and sun into a canvas of endless possibilities."
