Explore the Architecture of Bart PrinceDesigned by Albuquerque architect Bart Prince who is known for his unusual, sometimes space-age looking designs, the "snail house" is a fascinating structure. It's not used regularly—apparently the conical snail structure gets a little leaky—but visitors can tour this workshop. Too, Casas de Suenos is situated near Old Town, a top attraction in Albuquerque, and along the Rio Grande bosque—a perfect location for lodgings. The casitas are set around a lovely central courtyard and, given that it was formerly an artist colony, several casitas bear murals from local artists.
