Crow Canyon

3-D Sites Gallery

Architect Dennis Holloway collaborated with aerial photographer Adriel Heisey and the Crow Canyon Archaeological Center on these three-dimensional reconstructions of ancient Pueblo sites on the landscape. The first photograph in each pair is an aerial photograph of the site as it looks today; the second shows a three-dimensional model of the site as it would have looked when it was inhabited by Pueblo people (data from Crow Canyon excavations or, in the case of Yucca House, a collaborative Mesa Verde National Park–Crow Canyon mapping project).
