On The Trail: Grand Canyon architecture

Mary Colter was the visionary designer behind the Grand Canyon’s most recognizable buildings. Drawing on ancient Native American structures for inspiration, Colter (one of a handful of female architects in her day) created buildings that blended in with their settings, physically and culturally, and spawned an architectural movement – National Park Rustic – on display at parks across the country. Conor Knighton reports.
