Roswell Museum Courtyards

Location: Roswell, NM

Completed: 2011

MRWM provided landscape design services for a series of outdoor courtyards at the Roswell Museum, incorporating gathering areas and spaces for viewing outdoor sculpture. A major goal for this project was to creatively tie the private areas within the museum courtyards to the public space of the adjacent main street, allowing for openness and visibility while addressing the museum’s need for security and enclosure. In addition, MRWM  redesigned the gantry for the museum’s famous Goddard Rocket, restoring the monument to its proper role as a focal point and main attraction.
