Well, someone likes contrasts, don’t they?
Generally, adobe walls are covered with a layer of stucco to keep the adobe from melting. The wall on the left shows what happens when the layer of stucco is left off.
The contrast between the adobe and the more permanent mortar makes interesting patterns of light and textures. And the contrast between the adobe wall and the smooth stucco one beside it provides another nice set of contrasts.
(I don’t know this for sure, but I think the Judd Foundation uses this particular type of non-stuccoed adobe walls around some of its properties. It’s artistic. I suppose.)
