That Federal Building in Roswell is somewhat reminiscent of the FLWright's Mayan Revival. Would be great to do some further research on this.

Definitely Wright inspired, but also seems to reference the ancient pueblo architecture in New Mexico.

Oh yes I do see that, seamless blending. This was certainly done by a master or a master's apprentice, superb massing and detailing.

There might be more of a local vernacular reference to the ancient Pueblo architecture in New Mexico.
