Uxmal: House of the Governor [June 21, 1995]

"The House of the Governor is the most refined and perhaps the last achievement of the architects of Uxmal. In it many scattered solutions were brought together to make up an edifice of striking harmony and repose. Its profiles are adapted to the scale of the landscape, and its surfaces are adjusted to the hard light of Yucatan with an ease that reveals both a mature architectural tradition and the presence of an architect of great endowments."

George Kubler, The Art and Architecture of Ancient America, p.241
