NMSU Zuhl Library

Location: Las Cruces, NM

Completed: 1990

MRWM completed a comprehensive landscape design for the Zuhl Library plaza at New Mexico State University. The California fan palms and their courtyard were designed in a grid pattern inspired by the elegant columns of the Great Mosque at Cordova, in Spain. The palms provide a canopy of full shade throughout most of the year, and a lush foreground for the stately library building.
