Why pueblo style architecture is seen all over Santa Fe

Santa Fe has strict building codes requiring even outlying franchise motels and chain restaurants to maintain the pueblo style of architecture. Pueblo construction is popular even without the building codes. It has proven to be very durable, it maintains a timeless look whether it is 100 years or 10 days old, and it is very energy efficient. The State Capital building was even designed to resemble a kiva, a round ceremonial structure found in Pueblos.
