This history of La Luz, a planned development on Albuquerque, New Mexico's near west side, that celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018, presents it as a model for architectural and planned community design. Included on the New Mexico Register of Cultural Properties, La Luz exemplifies the spirit of ecosophy--ecological harmony--contributing to the spiritual and physical health of its residents. Featured are interviews with Ray A. Graham, III, its developer, renowned architect Antoine Predock, and others initially involved in this project. Included are descriptions of the community governance and the spirit of its residents with a look ahead to the challenges of sustaining this community in a changing environment.
