9780826348128: The University of New Mexico

This photographic portrait of the University of New Mexico shares the lure and magic of the campus and its unique architecture. Formally established in 1889, UNM has evolved into a major American university, overcoming geographical isolation and the relative poverty and rural circumstances of much of the state’s small population.


"Since its founding on the sand hills above downtown Albuquerque in 1889, the University of New Mexico has graduated countless thousands of students who have been the mainstays of New Mexico's economic, political, and cultural life. The heart and soul of Albuquerque, and beloved by its alumni across the country and around the world, UNM is much more than an alma mater. It has querencia, a place in our hearts, like a homeland.

"Designed to exclude automobiles from its inner core, the main campus is an oasis of cultured civility, at once brimming with the youthful vigor of its student body and rooted in the American West's most venerable social and aesthetic traditions. It's what makes UNM an academic symbol of the mind-opening sense of enchantment that New Mexico is known for around the world. UNM's cutting edge vitality in literature, fine arts, physics, biology, anthropology, medicine, law, engineering, and dozens of other fields gives voice to the rich diversity and genius of the people of New Mexico."--V. B. Price

Book Description University of New Mexico Press, Albuquerque, New Mexico, U.S.A., 2009. Hard Back. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. Reck, Robert - Potography (illustrator). 120 Un-numbered pages. A beautiful book with examples of superior color photography on every page that brings to life what this extraordinay campus really looks like. This pictorial of The University of New Mexico displays the beautiful campus and unique architecture of a small college that evolved into a major university, overcoming geographical isolation and a sparsely populated state. Since its founding in 1889 UNM has graduated thousands. Designed to exclude automobiles from its inner core the main campus is an oasis of cultured civility with the youthful vigor of its student body and rooted in the American West's social and aesthetic traditions. It's what makes UNM an academic symbol of the enchantment that New Mexico is known for around the world. UNM's emphasizes literature, fine arts, physics, biology, anthropology, medicine, law, engineering, and dozens of other fields. New Mexico is the original Hispanic heartland of North America. Spanish settlers coming up from Mexico colonized the region well before the English and Dutch established themselves on the East Coast. The state is one of the few places in North America where American Indians have withstood the pressures of European conquest to remain culturally viable and politically influential. Because of New Mexico's isolation has contributed to its long history of top secret scientific enterprises. New Mexico has more PhDs per capita than other states. With only two million people, New Mexico is home to a community of writers, poets, scholars, physicists, architects, musicians, painters, and sculptors. When a visitor enters UNM's main campus, walking north past the sleek regional modernist-style building called George Pearl Hall, the new Antoine Predock designed School of Architecture and Planning, or enters from the west past the Spanish/Pueblo style Alumni Chapel and the historic landmarks of Scholes Hall and Zimmerman Library, all initially designed by regionalist architect John Gaw Meem and /his associates, the complexity of New Mexico's cultural landscape becomes apparent.
